From:  Town of Hudson Department of Public Works

On Friday, October 20, 2017, the Hudson Department of Public Works will be conducting culvert repairs from 477 Main Street to 481 Main Street.

There will be no detail officers in place, thus a detour will be set up. Traffic headed into Hudson will be directed onto Orchard Drive to Wilkins Street, then back onto Main Street. Traffic leaving Hudson will not be impacted.

Please contact the Hudson DPW at 978-562-9333 with any questions or concerns.


To:  River Street Residents and Commuters

From:  Town of Hudson Department of Public Works

Westbound traffic will be able to leave Hudson with no issues. Thru eastbound traffic will be detoured around Meadowbrook Road to Maple Street, and back onto River Road.

River Street residents will still be able to access their driveways during this work.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this work, please call the Hudson DPW at 978-562-9333.


The Hudson Department of Public Works is now accepting sealed bid packages for snow plowing and hauling for the 2017-2018 winter season. Sealed bids are due on October 25, 2017.  Email Taylor at to request a bid package.


The Town of Hudson DPW began hydrant flushing on Monday, October 2nd and will continue until completion. Crews will work from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and from 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Crews will start on Chestnut Street and will work their way across the town, weather permitting.

 Hydrant flushing is essential to maintaining healthy and clean drinking water for our residents. The flushing process clears sediment and mineral deposits and buildups from water main pipes. It is also essential for many public safety reasons – it serves as quality assurance that all the hydrants are working as necessary, and it ensures that there will be proper water pressure for firefighting.

Potential Side Effects

While we are flushing the hydrants, you may notice that your water may become discolored. Don’t panic! The discolored water does not pose an actual health risk; it is just a discoloration due to mineral sediments flushing through the  hydrants. To resolve, run all the cold water faucets in your house for about 10 minutes until the water runs clear.

You may experience low water pressure while the hydrants are flushing. This is strictly short term and will subside when we finish flushing.

If you continue to experience low water pressure or discolored water, or if you have any questions, call the office. Continue to check this webpage for updates as we continue flushing.

Please be cautious and courteous of our crews working alongside the streets. If you experience dirty water, run your cold water faucets for about 10 minutes. If symptoms persist, call the Hudson DPW at 978-562-9333. (after hours - call the Police Department at 978-562-7122)

We are now well underway on the approximately 105-day closure of the Washington Street Bridge. The bridge is expected to re-open on September 29th, 2017, with an anticipated completion date of Spring 2018. Detours are set in place and there are several access routes into downtown. Please see the below attachments for further information.


If you are selling your home in Hudson, you are required to call the Department of Public Works to request your final water and sewer reading. You must call at least 5 - 10 business days before the closing and provide us with the address of the house, the closing date, and the buyer's name(s), as reads on the purchase and sales agreement. This will allow us to roll the water and sewer over into their name, and a final bill will not be excecuted without the new owner's name(s). We will also need to schedule a time for your water meter to be changed. This will be of no cost to the buyers or sellers, but we will need somebody to be home to let us into the house. The current meter must be in an unobstructed area, meaning it cannot be hidden in a wall or hidden by furniture - we will not be responsible for clearing the area. The meter takes about an hour to be installed and water usage will not be available while the meter is changed. For any questions regarding this process, please call Ann at 978-562-9333, extension 319.
