W. High Street Culvert Repair Work

City of Somersworth

UPDATED Street Construction Notice – West High Street – Week of September 24

Traffic Detour Plan schedule change

Construction work will be delayed 1-week due to heavy rain expected tomorrow from Hurricane/Tropical Storm Florence. The necessary detour will commence next week September 24.

The culvert repair work is being postponed until September 24, 2018 to allow time for both the existing subsurface water and the anticipated additional amounts of rainwater to subside.

Once the replacement work begins on Monday, September 24th, the road will be closed in the vicinity of the Maple Street culvert. Traffic on W. High Street will be detoured around the site by using either Maple Street for those vehicles traveling easterly and to Cemetery Road for those vehicles traveling westerly. Electronic Message Board signs in place on West High Street have been updated to reflect the new work plan. Plans are to reopen the street at the end of each work day.

Questions about these road and utility improvements may be directed to the Department of Public Works and Utilities at 603-692-4266 or to the City Manager’s Office at 603-692-9503.
