Cultural Resource Work Along Durham St.

The Partnership is committed to installing pipelines in a sensitive manner as it relates to the environment and cultural resources. Earlier this year, crews completed testing along Durham St. which showed evidence of cultural resources.

Before pipeline construction proceeds early next year, crews will further explore five locations in Durham Street for potential cultural resources. Key information:

  • Work is expected to begin the week of September 15 and take about five weeks to complete.
  • Work will occur on Durham Street between Leonard and Ladd Streets.
  • Work hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Crews will excavate one, 30 by 7 ft. section of pavement at a time. After work hours, the hole will be covered with a steel plate, with temporary paving to follow.
  • During work hours, there will be single-lane closures with flaggers, to accommodate equipment.
  • Crews will do everything they can to maintain driveway access for residents during the work, but at times, residents may need to park on a side street temporarily while work is being conducted.
  • Neighbors may experience noise during excavating, backfilling and paving.
  • Up to 20 people will be working on site at any one time.
