Don’t get too comfortable with that lack of car traffic in town this summer…
From the Wellesley DPW:
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.
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.
