South Shore Road Area Sewer Project

3rd Force Pipes Loaded[1]

The Nantucket Sewer Department advises the public on a significant sewer and utility project in the South Shore Road area.

The first phase of construction will start on March 7, 2022 beginning at the Surfside Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) at 81 South Shore Road and run along the full length of South Shore Road to the intersection of Surfside Road through June 2022. 

Area roads affected include:

  • South Shore Road from Surfside Road to the Surfside WWTF
  • Nanina Drive
  • Beach Plum Avenue
  • Whero Lane
  • Sherburne Commons
  • Plover Lane
  • Zachary Way
  • Felcon Drive
  • South Pasture Lane
  • Correia Lane
  • Rachel Drive
  • Tripp Drive
  • Morgan Square
  • Hillside Avenue
  • Blueberry Lane 

The Robert B. Our Company will be performing the work. The Nantucket Sewer Department will have engineering staff on-site during the entirety of the work.  The work will be completed using best industry engineering and construction standards and practices for expediency and cost effectiveness. The roadways will be maintained with gravel until the pavement binder course can be properly placed towards the completion of this phase of the project.  Roadways are planned to be paved before the 2022 summer season.

This project is often referred to as the “3rd Force Main Project” and is critical to improve the conveyance capacity and reliability of the wastewater system from the Sea Street Pump Station, located in the downtown area, to the WWTF. The remainder of the project from the Sea Street Pump Station to South Shore Road is anticipated to resume in the Fall of 2022 with completion anticipated in early 2025.
