February 2nd - Highland Ave. Evening Work and Water Service Interruption

Weather permitting, City contractors will be working this upcoming Thursday (2/2) evening between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. to perform necessary water utility work. This work will require the Highland Ave. (School St. to Central St.) Westbound Traffic Detour to remain in place throughout the evening. In addition to traffic impacts, this work may cause periods of elevated noise levels.

Water Service Interruption

Water service may be interrupted Thursday, February 2, between approximately 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. to facilitate water utility work at the below addresses:

  • 97-147 Highland Ave (excluding #135)

Once the water is back on, you may experience a short period of water discoloration. Though the water may be discolored, it is safe to drink. Until the water runs clear, it is advised to avoid washing laundry, especially white fabrics. If any rust stains appear on wet laundry, the clothes should not be dried, and you can call 311 (or 617-666-3311 from cell phones or outside the city) for a free bottle of rust remover.

This night work is expected to take one day after which construction crews will return to normal working hours (7 a.m. to 7 p.m.).

Thank you for your continued patience during construction. If you have questions, please email construction@somervillema.gov or call the Engineering Division at 617-625-6600 ext. 5400.
