This project will improve approximately 2,500 feet of roadway, provide an upgraded intersection and traffic signals at Dudley Road and new sidewalks and bike lanes along Fountain Street east of Winter Street. Wheelchair ramps and driveway aprons conforming to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements will be included. The overall intent is to improve pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular circulation between Winter Street and Waverly Street as well as safety for all users of this corridor.
The project will also improve the existing drainage system and rehabilitate water and sewer systems, as sections of those systems are in disrepair and not meeting current needs.
Work is anticipated to begin April 1. Construction will take place overnight, with minor daytime work anticipated at the start of the construction season. Daytime work will be off-road and will not impact traffic. Mobilization and water bypass construction will occur in early April. Abutters will be notified of any water service interruptions required.
