Portsmouth DPW Contractor Set to Begin Sagamore Avenue Sewer Extension Project on May 16, 2022

May 12, 2022

The City of Portsmouth Department of Public Works expects contractor Severino Construction to start work affecting City streets in the Sagamore Avenue Sewer Extension Project area on Monday, May 16, 2022. This project will be ongoing through December 2022. Construction will impact parts of Sagamore Avenue, Shaw Road, Cliff Road and Walker Bungalow Road, with excavation work starting on Sagamore Avenue and continuing onto the other streets as work advances. During construction travel on the streets will be limited, intermittently, to a single lane of alternating one-way travel Monday through Friday between 7 am and 6 pm.

Flaggers, signs, and portable traffic lights will be used to control traffic. Pedestrian movement may be interrupted over this time period, but pedestrians will be accommodated during the work. Vehicles and pedestrians traveling on Sagamore Avenue should expect minor delays.
