Construction Update: Week of October 3-7

A few more weeks of work, and construction will wind down. Thank you for all your patience. We hope you all like what you see so far!

For the week of October 3, crews will be working Monday to Thursday. We are at the time of the project where everything becomes weather dependent, so work may continue into Friday of this week. 

Please note, with work over the next two weeks, on-street parking will be limited. We would encourage folks to utilize off street parking when possible. Areas of no parking will be posted. 

The bike node at Grain Mill Alley is now open for use!


We are currently working to complete spot repairs of the milled pavement surface. Utility structures are scheduled to be raised starting Monday October 3. There are dozens of structures within the project limits, so please use caution when driving through the downtown in this interim phase. If hit at high speed, structures can cause damage to your vehicle. There will be multiple crews working in the roadway next week from various agencies. Please use caution to keep construction workers safe. 

Final paving is now tentatively scheduled to begin the week of October 10. All of these dates are weather dependent, and we will update you as things change.

Punch list activities will continue on sidewalks, but the majority of the work will take place in the roadway. Tree plantings will continue as we are able to obtain trees.

As always, access to businesses will REMAIN OPEN AT ALL TIMES. Please remember to check our interactive map for the latest construction work zones.

The Project in a Nutshell

The Center Streetscape Project includes streets and sidewalks along Massachusetts Avenue from Clarke Street (next to the Library), to near the Police Station Driveway (see map at right).

Reconstruction of the Woburn Street/Massachusetts Avenue intersection is not a part of this project.
