Operations suspended on 12/22/22
- The contractor, A.F. Amorello & Sons, Inc. finished work for the season on Thursday, December 22.
- The Town, MassDOT, and A.F. Amorello are currently discussing locations other than Marathon Way for storing materials and equipment over the winter. When another location is identified, the public will notice everything being moved, or has been removed from Marathon Way.
Phase 1 and 2 of the Main Street reconstruction have been completed. This work focused on the area from West Main to the Fire Station and the 135/85 intersection and included the full-depth excavation of these sections of Main Street and the installation of 2 of the 3 final paving courses.
Winterization of the project is complete, including asphalt for driveways, sidewalks and wheelchair ramps. A base coat of asphalt has been placed for the shared-used path which will be plowed and used by all users during the winter.
Traffic signals at the Wood Street and the 135/85 intersection have been completed.
MassDOT will continue to coordinate with Eversource for utility work throughout the winter. In addition, MassDOT will continue to coordinate with subcontractors, including Premier Fence, who will be onsite in January to install the guard rail at CVS.
Anticipated Work - Spring 2023
- Phase 3 of the Main Street reconstruction, from the 135/85 intersection to Ash Street, will be started after the 2023 Boston Marathon
The Town of Hopkinton appreciates your patience and consideration while we work to support MassDOT’s project to revitalize our downtown infrastructure.
Anticipated Work Hours
Day work is anticipated to begin at 7:00am and generally conclude at 3:00pm during the weekdays (Monday through Friday). Anticipate site set up could occur just prior to 7am.
No detours, one lane closures or road closures are allowed between 7am and 9am.
As with all construction work, activities are anticipated as unexpected issues can arise and delay progress. Updates will be provided weekly.
Property Access and Parking Updates
Some on-street parking may be closed during construction.
If you have questions about access or parking to a business or home, please contact the Town’s Project Specialist (below). During the utility undergrounding work, the Town and the contractor will reach out to any abutters that will be directly impacted with regard to limited or no access to driveways. Police details and a MassDOT Resident Engineer will be on-site during construction.
NO PARKING signs will be posted 24-hours in advance of road work. We ask that you take notice of these signs and refrain from parking in these areas during the posted hours.
Sidewalk Reconstructuring Sequencing
Sidewalks are not anticipated to be reconstructed at the start of the project unless the proposed drainage and undergrounding of utility work is in a sidewalk. Updates will be provided.
