Lower Mills will see another street closure, this one during the last week of May and the first week of June as the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority puts the finishing touches on the rehabilitation of a major water pipeline.

The pipeline was built in the early 1900s, and serves Milton, Quincy and the southeast corner of Boston. The MWRA has poured $14.5 million into the project, which shut down several area streets last year as workers went below ground to lay down new pipes.

The latest phase of the project, which will start on April second and wrap up at the end of July, involves paving, fixing sidewalks and the Adams St. island, and a wheelchair ramp replacement.
