Washington and Main Water Improvements

updated 6/27/2022


About this project

The Washington and Main Water Improvements project replaced 3,000 feet of critical water main infrastructure under Washington Street and Main Street, some of the oldest water distribution pipes in the City of Dover that were installed in the late 1800s. The contractor installed a new ductile iron pipe that will provide reliable water service for the next 100-plus years.

The project area included all of Main Street, Washington Street from Central Avenue to Main Street and a portion of Henry Law Avenue closest to Washington Street. 

The project was completed in 2021. In the spring of 2022, the contractor returned for sidewalk restoration, paving and striping. 

After a competitive process, the City Council at its Oct. 14, 2020 meeting, authorized the City of Dover to contract with N. Granese & Sons, Inc. of Salem, Massachusetts to complete the work. Underwood Engineers is the City’s engineering consultant who completed the design and oversaw the construction.
