AUBURN — Crews working to finish the last piece of a central city storm-sewer project will close part of Goff Street on Monday for a day or two.

Sewer district crews will replace a section of drain pipe on Goff and Hampshire streets beginning Monday.

Work is scheduled to begin on Hampshire Street, with traffic detoured onto Goff Street and then onto Goss Street. Once Hampshire Street is finished, work will move to Goff Street and traffic will be detoured onto Hampshire Street and then to Goss Street.

The project, called the Perryville Combined Sewer Overflow project, began in May 2009. About 17,000 feet of new pipe has been installed in the neighborhood.

It includes the Perryville neighborhood east of Pettengill Park. That includes Turner, Summer, Winter and Whitney streets from Center Street northwest to Mayfield Road.

The project involved the installation of new sanitary sewers and storm drain lines, designed to keep storm water completely away from the city’s sanitary wastewater sewer system.

The new storm drains and sanitary sewers replaced a 100-year-old combined sewer system.

“This is just the last piece of that work we need to finish to wrap up that project,” said John Storer, district superintendent.
