Contractors are licensed by the town through the DPW to perform road openings on
town ways. Only licensed contractors may work in the town right of way.
Roads often are opened to install or work on driveways and underground
utilities. Any area within the town layout or right of way that is dug by
machine to a depth of more than one foot requires a permit from the town.
As always, DIG-SAFE should also be contacted to assure a safe work site. Call
508.862.4090 for more information.
