FALL RIVER: If you thought the traffic delays from the Fall River water project were bad now on Fall River Road, prepare yourself as construction crews begin work along Highway 2 for the project.

According to a notice put out by Halifax Water, they say crews from Dexter Construction will start Phase 2 of the project, which will see water brought down Highway 2 to the overpass by Inn on the Lake and Ingram Drive from Lexington Avenue, this month. This work is expected to last until the fall.

The notice says Phase 1, which is currently underway on Fall River Road, is expected to continue through the summer of 2018.

It says Dexter will have heavy equipment on the roads in the area for pipe installation, and that traffic could at time be delayed as they may be reduced to one lane in the areas of work.

The notice continues saying if you have property on Highway 2, along the Phase 2 route, they will be placing a stake where the proposed location for the water service pipe will be installed. The same will occur for those on Ingram Drive from Lexington Avenue up to the end that sits near Fall River Road.

“Site representatives from the consultant or contractor will meet with each owner to confirm the location for the service pipe prior to installation,” said the notice.
