The Easton Department of Public Works has scheduled a neighborhood meeting at the Easton Middle School Auditorium located at 98 Columbus Avenue on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. to provide information about Phase II of the Five Corners Sewer Project and to update residents and business about the upcoming construction.
The Project Team will provide an overview of the construction schedule, discuss potential construction and traffic challenges for the community and answer questions that residents and business owners may have about the construction project. This meeting is focused on the construction project, not sewer betterments and other project financing. A public sewer betterment workshop for property owners will be hosted by the Board of Selectmen/ Sewer Commissioners in early Summer.
The Five Corners Sewer Project Phase II includes installation of a sanitary sewer collection system with approximately 2,700 linear feet of 6-inch sewer force main; 11,100 linear feet of gravity sewer; 850 linear feet of low-pressure sewer, Foundry Street Pump Station, 6,000 linear feet of water main replacement for the Mulberry Brook and Beaver Brook Stream Crossings.
Benefits to the Community
The neighborhood’s reliance on individual wastewater septic systems has hindered growth within the area. The newly installed wastewater system will allow for the stimulation of economic growth and development; breathing new opportunities for undeveloped properties and making the overall environment more welcoming.
An additional benefit of the project is that it will address failing or compromised septic systems reducing the risk of contaminating local groundwater supplies. This provides an opportunity for:
Environmental benefits for the valuable resource areas.
Failing or compromised septic systems.
Spurring economic growth & development by reuse and infill.
Capitalizing on undevelopable parcels.
The project to install a sanitary sewer collection system from Roberts Drive along Route 106 down Foundry Street to the Five Corners area will result in one-way traffic along Route 106 during most of Phase II construction. The greatest amount of traffic is anticipated to occur during morning commuting hours.
Phase II of the Five Corners Sewer Project will include the following impacts, which may cause a temporary disturbance to you or your business:
Temporary traffic detours (temporary traffic lights will be installed at each end of Highland Street to help regulate traffic.)
Temporary service interruptions - you will receive a minimum of 24 hours advance notification of any planned service interruptions associate with this work.
Please contact us if you have any regularly scheduled medical services, deliveries, etc. so that we may coordinate these service with you during construction.
We are interested in creating minimal disruption while we work to provide access to local businesses throughout the project and will post additional signs to help customers access the stores, shops and restaurants.
