Wellesley traffic update: Washington Street construction starts July 14

Don’t get too comfortable with that lack of car traffic in town this summer…

From the Wellesley DPW:

Washington Street Roadway Improvements Project
(Laurel Avenue to Route 9)

The Washington Street Roadway Improvements Project is scheduled to commence on July 14, 2014.  The work will take place on Washington Street between Laurel Avenue and Route 9.  Work will take place Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Police details will be on-site during the project construction to minimize impacts to traffic, parking, and other roadway functions. A minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained throughout the majority of the project.

The project work includes sidewalk repair/replacement, wheelchair ramp reconstruction, removal of brick bands and brick crosswalks and resetting of granite curbing.The road surface will be milled and overlaid with a new paved surface. The work will be accomplished by the Department of Public Works and contractors under the direction of the DPW.  The project is scheduled to be completed by November 2014.

The Department of Public Works will provide periodic updates to this project on the Town’s home page (www.wellesleyma.gov), under the “Current Projects” area. We encourage anyone impacted by this project to sign up to receive Public Works Project Updates via email at www.wellesleyma.gov/subscriber. You are also encouraged to register for emergency alerts and traffic updates (email / text message) from the Wellesley Police Department at www.wellesleypolice.com.

It is our intent to minimize the disruption of your normal routines as best we can. If you have any questions, at anytime during the duration of the project, feel free to call the DPW Engineering Division at 781-235-7600, extension 3315.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
