Crews have started replacing water pipes on central and Hickory streets in Springfield. Some of the piping on these streets dates back to the late 1800s.
Both projects started on Monday and will last for about three months. Construction will take place between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. from Monday through Friday.
During these hours, Hickory Street will be closed between Allen Street and Wilbraham Avenue and Central Street will be closed between Pine and Hancock Streets.
