One of downtown Watertown's prominent business sectors, Factory Street is home to many local businesses including manufacturing, retail, restuarants, and an urban mission. Named for the small mills and factories which extended along the river, Factory Street is currently undergoing an impressive reconstruction. The project includes:
- Full-depth roadway, curb, and sidewalk reconstruction.
- Sewer separation, water main replacement, traffic signal alterations, and private utility relocations.
- Pedestrian and bicycle accessibility improvements.
- Streetscape and landscaping improvements.
The project is slated to be completed Fall 2016.
