Construction begins to replace water pipes on Berkshire Avenue in Springfield

Hampden County

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Repairs to drinking water pipes and valves in Springfield will interrupt traffic on Berkshire Avenue starting Monday. 

The Springfield Water and Sewer Commission said the construction will cause Berkshire Avenue between Kings Lane and Preston Street to be reduced to one-lane alternating traffic. 

The Commission said the water pipe in the area dates back to 1911 and is part of its water infrastructure renewal program. 

It is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 17 and continue for three months, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather dependent. 

Signs and police will be available to make the traffic move smoothly. 

You can reach out to the Commission at 413-310-3501 with questions regarding the project or click here for more information.
