On Thursday and Friday (weather permitting), mill and overlay work will be performed on Burlington Rd (Crosby Drive to Town line) and Oak Park Drive including structure adjustments. Mill and overlay is the process of grinding off the top layer of existing asphalt pavement (an inch to an inch and half) by means of a large milling machine and replacing this layer with a new HMA (Hot Mix Asphalt) riding surface.
During the week of September 6, work on Sunset Road, Alaska Ave, Oregon Ave, Orchard Road, Hill Road, and Franklin Road was completed.
Traffic will be managed by the police on-site; please anticipate delays and plan your trips on these roads accordingly. Vehicle access in and out of properties will be maintained but may be restricted for short periods. Emergency vehicles and vehicles for Town services (trash collection, etc.) will always have access at all times. Work hours will be 7 AM to 4 PM. Please drive carefully and adhere to traffic rules and signages in construction zones. Police will be present during this work but some delays and lane closures can be expected, temporary detours will be marked and signage setup for vehicular traffic. Thank you for your patience. Please contact the Department of Public Works at (781) 275-7605 if you have any questions or need additional information. We will be posting updates on the DPW News and Announcements and the Homepage as we receive them.
