Public Meeting: Update on MWRA Sewer Project in West Roxbury

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will hold a public meeting on Thursday, March 2, 2006 to provide an update on construction of the Upper Neponset Valley Relief Sewer Project. The project is centered along the Providence Highway (Rte. 1), VFW Parkway, St. Joseph’s Cemetery, and several side streets.

The public meeting will be held at West Roxbury Elks, 248 Spring Street, at 7:00 P.M.

The $36 million project will provide relief to the 100-year-old, overtaxed sewer system that overflows in wet weather and includes 2.3 miles of new sewer lines running under VFW Parkway in West Roxbury from Corey Street to Claire Motors. Additional work in West Roxbury will take place on LaGrange, Gardner and Baker Streets, and in St. Joseph’s Cemetery. 

The project is being constructed by P. Gioioso & Sons, Inc. of Hyde Park.  This meeting will provide an opportunity for project neighbors to ask specific questions about the project and the construction schedule.

Additional information can be obtained from Jeffrey McLaughlin at MWRA, (617) 788-1170. MWRA urges residents along the route to attend this important public meeting.
