TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Route 125/Ballardvale St. Water Main Replacement To Begin Week Of July 31

WILMINGTON, MA — Starting the week of July 31, 2017, Joseph P. Cardillo & Son, Inc., a contractor working for the Town of Wilmington, will begin the installation of a new 12-inch cement lined ductile iron water main in Route 125 (Ballardvale Street).

The project includes the installation of approximately 3,800 feet of 12-inch cement lined ductile iron water main in Route 125 (Ballardvale Street), from the Salem Street /Ballardvale Street area near the North Intermediate School to the intersection of Route 125 and Ballardvale Street, including the portion that is located over Interstate 93 at the exit 41 overpass bridge. The new 12-inch ductile iron pipe will replace the same length of existing 6-inch undersized, unlined cast iron pipe that was installed around 1958.

While Route 125/Ballardvale Street will remain open to travel, there will be police directing traffic during construction.

For the area within Town of Wilmington jurisdiction, the working hours will be Monday through Friday between 7:00am to 5:00pm.  The work within MassDOT jurisdiction (in the vicinity of the I-93 overpass bridge) shall be completed Monday through Friday between 9:00am to 3:00pm, unless other arrangements are made with MassDOT.

Area residents will be notified in advance if  water service will be temporarily interrupted due to a planned shutdown. As with any water main project, however, water service could be unexpectedly disrupted. Therefore, it is suggested that you keep a gallon of water in the refrigerator during this project.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Wilmington DPW at 978-658-4711.
