Drivers headed west through Nelsonville this morning encountered some mild traffic tie-ups as the early stages of the Cold Spring water main relining project finally came to life.

White plastic water pipes lined the curbs for blocks along Fishkill Road and the north side of Route 301 as crews connected them and used asphalt to create speed-bump-like mounds over the piping at every intersection with a street or driveway.

Once the pipe is all in place, it will be flushed, disinfected, re-flushed, and de-chlorinated in advance of a final bacteriological analysis.

A posting on the Village website noted that communication regarding the hookup of the temporary water service should begin the week of Labor Day
