Park Center Road to be closed for water tank work

Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) announced that Park Center Road (formally known as Judd Road) will be closed to traffic beginning on Monday afternoon at 3:30 PM, September 11th and is expected to re-open Wednesday, September 13th at 3:30 PM.  This closure is necessary to begin construction of a new water storage tank. 

“We recognize that this road closure will be an inconvenience to residents living in the area,” said John Bilda, General Manager of NPU. “However, the tight footprint of the site requires the crane be positioned in such a way that it blocks the road for part of the construction.”

The new 2.5 million gallon water storage tank replaces the old tank built in 1971.  When completed, the tank will be 73 feet in diameter and 86 feet high, as compared to the old tank which was 140 feet in diameter and 52 feet tall.  NPU is replacing the water storage tank with a new and improved tank as part of its efforts to modernize Norwich’s water infrastructure.  The design of the new tank will result in improved water quality and lower maintenance costs.
