Drivers headed into Bedford Center along Concord Road (Rte 62) have noticed a blinking sign indicating road work to begin on July 31. And today they also noted several surveyors working alongside Wilson Park where Concord Road, North Road and the Great Road come together.
In an e-mail late Monday afternoon, DPW Director Richard Warrington said that the two indications were not related.
“The signage is for the upcoming annual pavement management program,” he said, “and the survey work taking place is for the preliminary design of the Great Road Master Plan.” The town’s consultants are working on the concepts developed over the past several public input meetings, and will use the accurate measurements gleaned by the surveyors.
In addition to Concord Road from St. Michael’s to Evans Avenue, this summer’s road reconstruction includes: Alfred Circle, Riverside Avenue, Oakland Avenue, Bonair Avenue and Anthony Road.
