CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Grattan Street near Grace Street in Chicopee will remain closed until 10:00 pm Thursday night for emergency repairs.
Construction in the area of Grattan Street has been ongoing during daytime hours for a combined sewage project.
The City of Chicopee issued an emergency notice at 5:00 pm saying a trench was being dug for the new sewer main. That trench was right near the old pipe, causing the existing sewer main to collapse and forcing the extended closure.
Officers are at the intersection and have set up detours to assist drivers for the duration of the closure.
