Project Summary  

The Work under this contract includes, but is not necessarily limited to, the installation of approximately 4,000 linear feet of new 8-inch ductile-iron water main on Butternut Circle, Minot Road, Fox Lane, Mallard Drive and Black Duck Road. The water main improvements also include the installation of new hydrants, valves, water service connections, and trench pavement. Some materials required for this project are being provided by the Town of Concord.

Substantial completion for this project must be achieved by September 22, 2023. All infrastructure must be installed, backfilled, and online by this date. Substantial Completion includes all excavation and backfilling operations (inclusive of compaction testing) for the new water mains, hydrant branches and hydrant installations, water service installations, abandonments of old services, old water mains, and interconnections to all existing water infrastructure as required, inclusive of required pressure testing, disinfection, and bacteria testing. Substantial Completion cannot be achieved until the Town has taken beneficial use of the new utilities. All punch list items must be completed by October 15, 2023.

In October 2023, the Town’s “Roads Program” paving contractor is expected to mobilize to the neighborhood, to begin preparation work for the curb-to-curb pavement replacement project. Level binder pavement is expected to be installed by mid-November 2023. In the spring of 2024, the “Roads Program” paving contractor is expected to return to the neighborhood to complete the finish pavement layer. Any outstanding cleanup items or grass restoration will also be finalized in Spring 2024 to complete the project.
