Construction Update

High Street Water and Drain Replacement

March 31, 2020


The Ayer Department of Public Works will be replacing the water main on High Street from Holmes Street to Winthrop Avenue.  This will replace the 100 year old water pipe with a new 8-inch ductile iron water main. New water services to the houses will be installed from the new water main to the property line (property line to the house is the homeowners’ responsibility). Drainage pipe and structures will also be replaced.

Work will begin on Monday, April 6th. Work will begin with drainage replacement including catch basins and pipe. After completion of the drainage work, temporary water main will be installed and the water main and services will be replaced. Additional construction notices will be distributed as the work progresses.

The road will be closed to through traffic during construction hours but will be open to the local residents and public safety vehicles.
