"The road was damaged so badly that it just can't simply be repaved," said Justin Kates, director of the city's Office of Emergency Management.
"It is a pretty sizable water main, and the water caused an unbelievable amount of damage. When I went out there to check it out, it looked like an earthquake had hit," he said Friday.
"It really took out the footing and undermined the roadway in the entire area," said Kates.
Pennichuck is coordinating the reconstruction of the roadway, and is working with a contractor to get Allds Street back in travel condition as soon as possible, said Kates. In addition, the city's engineers are helping with the plans for the roadway and sewer infrastructure improvements if necessary, he explained.
