Earlier this week, Town Administrator Jeff Nutting provided us with an update on the construction project that will have a significant impact on the downtown streetscape for at least the next year.
In Administrator Nutting’s words:
“Contractor started saw cutting the pavement from West Central at Emmons Street to East Central Street for installation of drainage structures. They expect to start with the drainage structures along West and East Central Streets, and then jump back up to Main Street at School Street, then work down Main to Emmons Street, then Emmons Street back to West Central.
In the next couple of weeks, they expect to have another crew on the project starting with the roadway reconstruction at the Church and work down Main Street to Emmons Street.
The light pole crew is also expected in the next couple of weeks.
MASSDOT indicated that they would have the contractor repair any tree protection fencing that was damaged over the winter.
If anyone has a question, please feel free to reach out to the DPW Director Brutus Cantoreggi or Town Engineer Michael Maglio at 508-553-5500 or my (Jeff Nutting) office at 508-520-4949.”
