Motorists to be Detoured Around Overnight Water Work in Chicopee


CHICOPEE, Mass. (WGGB) — Some overnight water work in Chicopee may require motorists to seek alternate routes.

Chicopee Water Department says that starting at 8:00 p.m. Thursday, crews will be working to replace an underground water valve near the intersection of McKinstry Avenue and Dale Street in the city’s Aldenville neighborhood.

Some water customers in the area may experience low or no water pressure while the work is ongoing. Others may experience discolored water and it’s suggested that that water not be used until the work is complete.

The city’s Department of Public Works says that detours will be in place between 8:00 p.m. Thursday and 6:00 a.m. Friday near the work site.

Traffic will be detoured around the site, and motorists are being asked to avoid the area, if possible.
