Due to a significant breakage issue with the main sanitary sewer line on a stretch of Route 1, approximately 14 hours of emergency sewer repair work has been scheduled in Darien.
Contractors working for the Town of Darien Department of Public Works will be performing the replacement work on Tuesday, May 14 in the area of Post Road and Birch Road, starting at approximately 6 a.m.
The work is expected to go until 8 p.m. Tuesday evening, Darien Police said.
Access into Birch Road from Route 1 will not be available for the majority of the day and motorists will be required to detour into the Birch Road area via Richmond Drive or Brookside Road, according to police.
There will be periods during the work day where both ingress or egress (into/out) of Birch Road will be unavailable. Motorists are requested to avoid the Birch Road area if possible and to consider alternate routes to their destinations.
All Darien Emergency Services will be advised of the roadway restriction and sufficient traffic personnel have been requested for the duration of the project.
Both the Darien Police Department and Darien Department of Public Works thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as this emergency repair work is performed.
