Phase II Update November 2020
The Phase 2 Sewer Project is nearing completion and the sewer system will be online once National Grid completes the utility service connections and the pump stations are started up around the end of the year / early 2021. Miscellaneous follow-up activities may be ongoing at times in the upcoming weeks as the project approaches final completion, but no major impacts or consistent presence of the contractor in the project area is anticipated.

Phase 2 Sewer Project
The Phase 2 Sewer Project was approved at Annual Town Meeting on May 15, 2018. The Phase 2 Sewer Project will bring municipal sewer to approximately 64 parcels concentrated in the Town’s largest expanse of commercial/industrial zoned area along northern Middlesex Road to the New Hampshire border. The Project includes approximately 5,400 linear feet of new sewer; 3,250 linear feet of new water main, 12,200 linear feet of new force main, 2 wastewater pumping stations, and a force main crossing of the Tyngsborough Bridge (south side of sidewalk), within portions of Northern Middlesex Road, Sherburne Avenue/ Tyngsborough Bridge, Parker Lane, Curtis Road, Curtis Hill Road, Lawndale Road, Park Road, Coburn Road, and Maplewood Avenue. The Water Main portion of the Project will construct approximately 2,800 linear feet of water main to connect the existing two dead end mains, which will bring municipal water to all parcels in the Project area. This provides not only water quality, but ensures adequate fire protection to all parcels in this geographic area of Town. In addition to the Town’s sewer contribution approved at 2018 Town Meeting, the Town applied for and received a $2.5M MassWorks Grant to defer both water and sewer capital costs to the Project parcels. Construction of the water and sewer within the same Project timeline is planned to minimize impacts to the Project area, as well as to avoid the 5-year road opening moratorium that would significantly defer the water construction if not done together.
The Tyngsborough Phase 2 Sewer Project is partially financed ($13.1M) through the Massachusetts State Revolving Fund (SRF), administered by MassDEP, with joint funding support from the US EPA and Massachusetts Clean Water Trust. The installation of new gravity sewer, force main and pumping stations as part of this project will provide water quality benefits for the community by providing a municipal sewer system for residents and commercial businesses.
Construction is expected start Summer 2019 and continue through Fall 2020. Woodard & Curran is the Engineer and Albanese D&S, Inc. is the Contractor.
