Simpson Street - Water Main, Drainage and Street Improvement Project


General Description of the Work:

Contractors for the City of Plymouth will be completing a water main, street and drainage improvement project in the southeast section of the City on Simpson Street (east of Dewey Street).  The anticipated start date is July 26, 2018.

Improvement Project Details:

Anticipated Start Date:        July 26, 2018

Anticipated Duration:          Through Mid October 2018

Location:                           Simpson Street from Dewey Street to Ross Street

At various times, the public water service will be shut-off in order to make connections to the system. Notice will be given to residents in advance of water service interruption. Notices will be delivered to your front door.   All new water mains will undergo bacteriological and pressure testing prior to being placed in service.

Access to residences will be maintained throughout construction. Vehicular access to drive approaches will be interrupted for approximately 7 to 10 days when the new curb and gutter is poured.   Notice will be given in advance of interruption so that people can get their cars out of the driveway.

The following information is provided as a tentative contractor schedule.  Contractor schedules are often subject to change due to weather, field conditions, and material availability.

 We will make sure things are safe for Trick-or-Treating for the Halloween Holiday.

Garbage Collection will remain on its normal day – Wednesdays.   If your garbage does not get picked up for some reason, please call the City Department of Municipal Services and they will assist in getting it collected.

If leaves start to fall during construction, a plan for leaf pick up during the construction will be communicated.  We will have more information for the residents as the leaves start to fall and the construction progresses.
