water line construction

The Village and Municipality of the County of Kings have awarded a joint construction contract for the replacement of water and sewer along Queen Street, Seminary Avenue, Bigelow Street, Elm Street, and Pleasant Street to Howard Little Excavating Ltd. Construction is scheduled to begin in June or early July, and is expected to last until the end of August. Hours of work will generally be from 7 am to 7 pm. While construction is ongoing, the work area will be closed to traffic during work hours, except for emergency vehicles, construction traffic and local traffic. Temporary water services will be installed to each home prior to construction. During this contract, the asphalt will be completely removed from the streets. The Department of Transportation (DTIR) will be paving the streets in the fall under a separate contract, cost shared three ways by DTIR, the Village and the Municipality.
