NPU to undertake challenging water main repair in Greeneville

NORWICH – Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) will undertake one of its more challenging water main repair projects during the week of August 16-23 that will require a four-day closing of the 8th Street Bridge in Greeneville to all traffic and the removal of the railroad tracks at 8th Street.

NPU and contractor crews will be working to repair a 20-foot section of a damaged water main that is beneath the Providence & Worcester railroad track. The work has been closely coordinated with the railroad and was scheduled to avoid all rail freight traffic on the line through Norwich.

Between Thursday, August 19 and Monday, August 23, traffic in both directions over the 8th Street Bridge in Greeneville will be detoured along North Main Street, East Main Street, Hamilton Avenue, and Smith Avenue. Signs have been posted to notify the public of the construction schedule and the detour plan.
