Five Corners Sewer Construction Project: Phase II

OVERVIEW
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.

Planned Construction Activities for the Week of June 17, 2019

During the week of June 17, 2019 it is anticipated that C. Naughton Corp, will continue to install temporary water main bypass piping on Foundry Street. The temporary bypass piping will ensure uninterrupted water service to customers, and will minimize consumer service inconvenience. The temporary bypass pipe is installed along the curb line of the street and is connected to customers through an outdoor property spigot. The installation of this pipe will require short-term, alternating traffic.

Construction crews will also continue to perform the installation of the temporary traffic signal poles at Highland Street, Foundry Street and Bay Road. The temporary traffic signals are scheduled to be activated during the week of July 1, 2019. Subsequently, the contractor will initialize sewer main installation at the Foundry Street Pump Station working towards Robert Drive.

This work will be performed between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Two-way traffic will be maintained through the work zones. Please plan ahead for travel, expect delays and use caution while traveling through the work zone.

All construction applications are highly weather dependent and are subject to delays or postponement in schedule. The Foundry Street Detour is anticipated to begin on Monday, July 8, 2019. The Town of Easton appreciates your patience during this construction project and reminds everyone to please drive safely through work-zones.

Highland Street Paving Activities

While not part of the sewer project, please be aware that the resurfacing of Highland Street is scheduled to begin Monday, June 10, 2019. As part of the Town of Easton’s ongoing pavement management program, the Easton Department of Public Works will be paving Highland Street from Bay Road to the Mansfield Town Line. 

Motorists should expect minor delays and seek alternate routes during this time. Police Details will be on scene to assist and direct traffic through and around the work zones. The work involves the installation of an ultra-thin bonded asphalt overlay known as Nova Chip. The construction of the project is estimated to take approximately 2 to 3 days and is subject to delays from weather. Due to the thin nature of the material, traffic will be restored to the paved areas quickly. 

Foundry Street Detour
It is anticipated that the following traffic detour will be implemented in early to mid June for the Five Corners Sewer construction:

Sewer Service Information Form
Complete and return the sewer service information form, which was previously available at the May 29, 2019 Neighborhood Meeting. The form can be accessed here: Sewer Service Information Form

ChrisMunroeThis form is necessary to allow your sewer service pipe to be installed at the correct location along your property line. You can email the completed form direct to Chris Munroe at MunroeC@peercpc.com. If you have any questions, or need assistance in filling out the form, please do not hesitate to contact Chris at (802) 598-1155. During construction, the Project Site Representative, Chris, may request access to your home to help locate your existing sewer line / septic pipe. His photo is displayed for safety reasons. We do not recommend letting anyone into your home unless you’ve verified who they are.


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.

Potential Challenges
Five Corners Intersection - Bay RoadThe 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.
