Current Activity

Posted Wednesday, Nov. 8

Construction is underway on Chamberlain Street between Everett Avenue and Clark Avenue. This work began the week of Oct. 9 and should continue until early January. The work will have an impact on traffic, including temporary road detours and closures, and temporary on-street parking limitations.

Beginning Nov, 13, construction will limit traffic to one lane at the intersection of Clark Avenue and Chamberlain Street from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This construction should last for approximately one week.

Please check the webpage often as the project information will be updated regularly.

Construction schedules are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions such as weather, construction delays or conflicts.


Construction has begun on the 36-inch waterline replacement in the Hillsborough Street and Cameron Village vicinity. Many of the adjacent aging water and sewer lines will also be replaced as part of this project. As the work progresses, adjacent property owners will receive notifications before work begins on their street. Public Utilities has a full time on site inspector for the project and will provide coordination between the contractor and property owners as needs arise.

Issues with the existing waterline were first discovered in August of 2016 as part of a proactive condition assessment of critical waterlines, which is an important component of the Asset Management Program. The assessment concluded the waterline needs to be replaced to avoid failure.
