Excavation work on Chestnut and Oak streets in the center of town will begin Monday as contractors replace the underground water mains from the intersection of Chestnut and School streets to Oak and Maple streets, officials said . The work will continue through August, and officials said they expect the roads will be repaved by next summer.
