HOLYOKE – A crew from Caracas Construction Corp. in Ludlow continued work on a new eight-inch water main on Fairfield Avenue in the Highlands neighborhood on Tuesday. The work replaces an older six-inch water line affected by tuberculation, a buildup of rust that shrinks the effective diameter of the pipe, which was a problem for firefighters battling a house fire on the street in September 2019. The project, which also includes new lines on several adjacent streets, is expected to last into the fall.
