Water and Sewer Updates:
Hydrant / Unidirectional watermain flushing will begin on May 2nd. Anticipated completion date June 23rd. Work hours are 11 PM to 7 AM (Monday – Thursday); no work during inclement weather.
Townwide (storm drain) Catch Basin cleaning will occur with a hired contractor (RJ Gabriel Construction). Needham Water, Sewer & Drain Division performs routine inspection and cleaning of the 4,300+ catch basins.This project is being undertaken to optimize and supplement the current in-house catch basin cleaning program.
Highway Division Updates:
Please Note: Inclement weather may affect project schedules.
|Task 1||Roadway shoulder reconstruction, includes granite curbing installation, wheelchair access ramps, drain improvement and sidewalk reconstruction. |
|Task 2||Roadway rehabilitation, includes milling the entire road surface, casting adjustments and road paving. Jennifer Circle will be paved with Central Ave.|
Highway Division personnel, as well as town-hired contractor (D&R Paving) will start preparing the streets ahead of paving the week of May 23rd. First, we will be edging back the loam berm and repairing potholes. Second, we will be raising castings. Finally, a wearing course “top coat” of pavement will be placed. Asphalt low profile curbing will be added in areas to help control erosion in the berm.
After the top coat of pavement is complete driveway aprons affected by the paving will be adjusted. Loaming and seeding of disturbed areas will then follow. This process will take an additional two to three weeks after final pavement has been completed. Please water the newly seeded areas twice a day using a handheld hose early morning and evening to ensure optimal results. Do not park on the new asphalt curb or loam berm as it can be easily damaged.
Please remove any objects that have been placed on the sidewalk or on the loam berm ahead of the construction and identify any irrigation that may be close to the roadway.
We ask residents not to park in the roadway and refrain from any activity, which could result in water collecting on the roadway during construction and paving operations.
Please take into consideration that paving operations may cause delays in getting in or out of your street\driveway.
The schedule for this major infrastructure project is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
Verizon will be performing fiber cutover activities overnight beginning 4/29 in the areas of Charles St. to Highland Avenue.
MassDOT encourages drivers to avoid the area and seek alternate routes to minimize delays. Those traveling through the area should expect delays, reduce speed and use caution.
