Expect delays on Millers Falls Road
MONTAGUE — The sewer line work on Millers Falls Road and Industrial Boulevard resumed Thursday, constricting the roadway to a single lane in the area of the intersection.
Police Chief Charles “Chip” Dodge III advises drivers to expect significant traffic delays on these roads into early November, and to try to plan accordingly.
The roadways will be narrowed to one lane of travel while the project is taking place.
The contractor plans to limit work to Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Some work has already been scheduled for at least two Saturdays.
The water feeding Industrial Boulevard will be shut off for approximately 2 hours today while some work is done on the water main. When the water will be shut off is unknown; a company representative will be informing all of the businesses that will be affected.
Dodge wrote that the highway superintendent wishes to let everyone know that Millers Falls Road will be redone with black top .
