The Littleton Water Department is constructing a raw water transmission main to link the Spectacle Pond well to the new Whitcomb Ave Water Treatment Plant this summer.

The work along Rt.2A has been conducted at night to minimize traffic disruptions and is expected to be completed on June 23rd. Daytime work will begin on Spectacle Pond Road beginning on June 22nd between the hours of 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The 3.5 mile long transmission main is a critical component of LWD’s long term strategy to filter PFAS out of our drinking water.

Spectacle Pond Road will be closed to through traffic starting on Tuesday June 22nd. Regular construction hours will be Monday through Friday between 7am until 5pm, which will be through the summer. The detour will be through Hartwell Ave as shown in the below map. The Littleton Transfer Station will remain open its regular hours, but will only be accessible from Route 2A/Ayer Road.
