On Sunday, April 7, there was a water main break near the intersection of Elm Street and Riverside Drive. The break, in addition to interrupting water service to residents of Elm Street, caused extensive damage to the stormdrain system and undermined the roadway between Riverside Drive and the service entrance to Cooley Dickinson. Water service was restored within 12 hours. Storm drain repairs were complete on April 11.

DPW is working to mobilize a paving contractor to address the damage to the roadway. Elm Street will remain closed to all vehicle traffic until it can be repaired and we anticipate it will be reopened to all traffic by early May.
