Repairs to a broken sewer main on Providence Street near #121 will close the street Wednesday, Aug. 29, from to Lincoln Street to Ballou Street.
The repair is expected to take one workday to complete. There will be no thru-trucking on Providence Street from South Main Street to Smithfield Road that day, according to DPW Superintendent Mike Debroisse.
Debroisse released detour routes for cars and trucks during the repair:
Car detour route:
1) Heading south on Providence St — Right on Coe Street, turn left on Ballou Street, turn right back to Providence Street
2) Heading north on Providence Street — Left on Ballou Street, turn right on Coe Street, turn left back on Providence Street
Truck detour route:
1) To head south, take South Main Street (southerly) to Great Road and turn left.
2) To head north, into the city, take Great Road (westerly) and turn right on South Main Street.
Residents along these detour routes are asked to keep their vehicles in their driveways.
"If you normally travel Providence Street you are asked to seek an alternate route. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding," Debroisse wrote.
Any questions can be directed to the City of Woonsocket Engineering Division at 401-767-9213.
