2. Groton City Mayor Marian Galbraith said the city plans to start work on Thames Street this spring and go out to bid by the end of the month. Galbraith said the project was held up by problems obtaining an easement, so the plans were changed. The street will be done in sections, she said. Workers will rebuild the two ends of Thames Street first, then finish the middle.
“They won’t be tearing up the whole street at once,” she said.
