HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Starting Tuesday night, detours will be in place in South Holyoke because of ongoing sewer separation project work.
South Canal Street from Main Street to Sargent Street will be closed to through traffic until Friday, April 2. Local traffic will be allowed during the day.
South Canal Street will reopen to eastbound traffic at night and westbound traffic will detour from Sargent Street to Main Street.
According to the city of Holyoke, the $10 million project is mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency to separate storm drains and sewer lines throughout the South Holyoke area. The improvements will reduce the discharge of combined sewage to the Connecticut River during significant rainfall events.
The next phase of work is scheduled to begin April and is expected to continue through April 16 and will close South Canal Street at Cabot Street. Westbound traffic will be redirected to Main Street.
