"A three-month water main replacement project will get underway next week, potentially affecting traffic downtown.
The project will affect Hillside and Dean avenues. Town Engineer Mike Maglio said work will be conducted from Ray Street to just past Hillside Road. There’s another section that will be replaced off Hillside Road from School Street to Dean Avenue.
“The work on Dean Avenue will have most of the cut-through traffic coming through,” Maglio said. “This is an area that there are enough (alternative) roads that we can detour traffic easily if we need to.”
