Annual Road Program

Each year, the Department of Public Works reviews street conditions to develop its annual road reconstruction program. The program is based on a number of factors such as street and sidewalk conditions as well as past and planned utility work. The proposed program is presented to the Town Council Committee on Public Works, which then reviews and makes recommendations to the entire Town Council.

March 31, 2020:  In accordance with the Town Manager’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update, dated March 26, 2020, the suspension of construction services, as defined by the Governor’s Legal Office, has been lifted.  All construction services must be undertaken and conducted in a manner consistent with the COVID-19 Guidelines and Procedures for All Construction Sites and Workers at All Public Work, issued by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on March 25, 2020.

We are currently working with our contractors to update the schedules below. Latest updates:

Road Reconstruction Phase I and II (comprising 2019/2020 streets): The contractor will be installing signage, tree protection, rodent control and erosion controls on many of the streets. Lowering of castings in the Chandler Street, Burnham Street, and Bridgham Ave. neighborhood is scheduled to begin Thursday, April 9th. The Chandler/Burnham/Bridgham neighborhood has already been notified as to the work commencing. Other streets will be notified in advance of the work per our usual procedures. We are working with the contractor to develop an updated “3-week look-ahead” to post on this page.
