Next week, crews will prepare some existing roadways for paving and begin paving operations in limited sections of the project area.
Early next week, crews will complete the final water tie-in along Flynn Avenue. No water service disruptions are anticipated as part of this work.
Throughout the week, crews will work to fine-grade Briggs Street and Flynn Avenue in preparation for temporary pavement later in the week. In addition, crews will be installing temporary pavement to sidestreets including Ferguson Avenue, Lyman Avenue, Morse Place, and Batchelder Street and on Home Avenue between Foster and Batchelder Streets. All paving operations and preparatory work will be completed under single-lane closures with alternating one-way traffic. Paving operations are weather dependent.
Once temporary pavement has been installed on Batchelder Street, Morse Street, and Briggs Avenue, traffic will transition from the temporary gravel roadway onto the existing roadway alignments.
Utility work will continue between Flynn and Home Avenues over the next several weeks. Crews will continue water testing and service installations throughout the area working south. In addition, crews will continue installing stormwater infrastructure.
