Campbell street has been reopened for traffic for the time being. Further evaluation of the sewer line has confirmed it needs to be replaced. DPW and town consultants are preparing a bid package. Construction is expected to start in August. In the meantime, temporary measures have been taken to level and reinforce the street surface in several locations, and DPW will be monitoring conditions.
