The reconstruction of East Pleasant Street between Church Street and Central Avenue is slated to begin on July 9 at 7 a.m.
The work involves the renewal of the water line, storm water sewer and sanitary sewer as well as the installation of a new sidewalk and repaving of the road surface.
Pedestrian and vehicular access to the street will be limited to local residents. Through traffic will be detoured around the project.
No one was injured when four people escaped fires that extensively damaged their adjacent Edgewood Avenue bungalows on July 2.
The alarm was turned in at 8:40 p.m.
When firefighters arrived they discovered the two homes, located at 8 and 10 Edgewood Ave., and a Saturn sports utility vehicle on fire, Capt. John Matthews, Amherst Fire Department spokesman, said.
The Town of Amherst honoured 14 employees with long-services awards during a ceremony at town hall on June 25.
“The Town of Amherst is fortunate to have such dedicated, hard-working staff,” Mayor David Kogon said in presenting the awards.
“Without their dedication, the town simply could not deliver the quality programs and services that we do.”
