Hall St. Infrastructure Upgrades Community Meeting Feb. 26

Join Ward 5 Councilor Mark Niedergang and the Somerville Engineering Department on Wednesday, February 26, for a community meeting to discuss water, sewer, and roadway upgrades planned on Hall St. The meeting will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Kennedy School cafeteria, 5 Cherry St.
The water and sewer mains on Hall St. date back to 1900. As part of the Hall St. Infrastructure Upgrades project, both the water and sewer mains will be replaced to provide better system functionality. After those underground improvements have been made, some aboveground roadway upgrades are planned, including constructing new cement concrete sidewalks, curb ramps, and raised crosswalks for ADA compliance and improved safety.

Construction is tentatively expected to start this summer and finish by the end of the year, with final paving planned for the spring of 2021.
