Fore Street Project Update

Project Update 5/3/2022

The contractor continues to make progress towards project completion.  At this stage all main line storm drain and combined sewer replacement in Fore and Eastern Promenade has been completed.  A majority of storm drain and sewer connections to each Munjoy Hill side street have been made.  As of 4/29/22, the final phase of PWD water main renewal has begun at Waterville Street.  Water main will be installed from Waterville Street to Morning Street over the next six weeks.  Any questions relating to the water main work should be directed to the Portland Water District.  

A second crew is currently on-site reconstructing project streets, curbs and sidewalks concurrently with the water main work.  This reconstruction work will progress up the hill, following the pipe installation crew. The contractor has been preparing and is scheduled to install the first layer of pavement in Fore Street between Mountfort Street and Waterville Street this week.  Once this has been completed the contractor will begin repairing curbs and sidewalks in this area including the installation of new ADA compliant sidewalk ramps at Waterville Street.  The entire work zone will be getting re paved from curb to curb including side street areas which were disturbed by the project work.  

The City continues to thank the public for its patience as crews work to complete this critical infrastructure project.  For more information, including images visit the page at
