Tuesday marked a big day for officials and residents of Windsor alike as work on a 30-day project began to replace the main water line under the town’s Main Street. The work will take place on the stretch between the intersection of Main and State Streets down to the Constitution House, and force slight detours in the area.
According to Town Manager Tom Marsh, workers will replace the current main line that measures some six inches in diameter, with a 12-inch line that will allow for greater water flow in case of an emergency.
Officials estimate the project will cost $400,000, and say it will be paid for out of the town’s Water Utility Capital Fund.
Marsh told the Eagle Times he hopes to have the water line replaced by the second half of April before additional crews arrive to repave a lengthy portion of downtown Windsor from Main Street to the West Windsor line.
