Downtown Traffic Improvement status report, Aug. 15
Currently: Installation of curbing is ongoing and the majority of the curbing should be completed by the end of next week. Curbing installation at the westerly end of the project may be delayed to allow for a shift in the roadway due to some utility pole conflicts.
Week of Aug. 20: Gravel and grading for several sidewalk locations will be completed this week in preparation for the installation of the concrete.
Week of Aug. 27: Water and sewer service extensions on Church Street and excavation for drainage structure adjustments to accommodate the road shift at the westerly end of the project which should take about two weeks to complete.
Week of Sept. 3: Installation of the concrete for the sidewalks, adjustment of castings for utility structures and cold planning (grinding of uneven asphalt surfaces) in preparation of paving will begin this week and may also take a few weeks to complete.
Please contact MassDOT resident engineer, Angela Padavano at 774-292-2076 with any questions or concerns regarding the Downtown Traffic Improvements.
