Century Old Sewer Pipe Needs To Be Replaced on Route 135

A 101-year-old sewer pipe under Waverly Street, near Monnick Supply, will need to be replaced later this summer, said Framingham's Chief Engineer Bill Sedewitz.

The pipe, installed in 1913, will be replaced at the intersection of Waverly and Winthrop streets.

The project is scheduled to begin near Labor Day and will last 6 to 8 weeks, said Paul Scott, who is director of the town's capital construction projects.

Work on Waverly Street will take place mostly at night from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., but work on the entire project also will take place Monday through Friday from 7:30 to 5 p.m.

"It is partially collapsing," said Sedewitz to neighborhood residents at a meeting earlier this month. "It needs to be addressed."

We will be lucky if the replacement pipes lasts this long! 101 years, that is quality craftsmanship!
