Some on-street parking spaces along both sides of Main Street will need to be closed as part of this work. Parking spaces will reopen as the work progresses.

If you have questions about access or parking to a business or home, please contact the Town’s Project Specialist (below). Access to businesses and homes will be maintained during construction. 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

A construction schedule will be provided by the Contractor over the next few weeks. 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.
