Downtown Improvements – September 2020 Render

Overview

The Downtown Clinton Revitalization Program includes streetscape and transportation improvements in support of commerce, investment, community pride, and the quality of life that we are all able to enjoy in Clinton. 

Beginning in September of 2020, the reconstruction of High Street and Church Street will begin. 

Improvements will include:

  • Full-depth roadway improvements-including drainage. 
  • New sidewalks and curbing.
  • Pedestrian and intersection improvements.
  • New street furnishings and landscaping.
  • Improved signage.
  • State of the art decorative lighting throughout the project area.

The project includes the reconstruction of:

  • High Street from the intersection of Union Street to the intersection of Water Street; approximately 1,860 feet.
  • Church Street from the intersection of Walnut Street to the intersection of School Street; approximately 820 feet.
  • A segment of Union Street, for approximately 200 feet. The total length of the project is approximately 2,880 feet.

Project Cost | Funding

Funding for the reconstruction of High and Church Streets is provided by the Town’s Infrastructure Stabilization Fund, and by a $1.5 million grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Massworks Infrastructure Program, which targets infrastructure projects that support housing production, spur private development, and create jobs. 

Total project cost is approximately $4.5 million. 

Work Schedule 

Construction activities will occur between the hours of 7:00AM and 5:00PM, Monday through Thursday. No work will be performed on weekends without prior approval from the Town. A minimum of 24 hours advanced notice will be distributed in advance of any planned construction activities. 

Traffic Management 

Vehicular and pedestrian travel on the public way will be maintained during construction and access to doorways will be provided at all reasonable times. If so directed, temporary access walkways will be provided to ensure safe passage under all weather conditions.

  • In the work zone, traffic delays are to be expected. Drivers may wish to seek alternated routes during construction hours.

  • Roads and surfaces will be uneven at times. All motorists- and motorcyclists, especially - are advised to use caution while traveling through the work zone.  
  1. Scheduled Construction Activities

Week 25: High Street Reconstruction

Note: Updates are based on a two-week “look-ahead” provided by the project contractor, I.W. Harding Construction Co. Inc., of West Bridgewater, MA. The schedule is subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances, including weather, delivery of materials, subcontractor availability, or unknown subsurface conditions.

Week 25: Beginning Monday, June 14, 2021

  • Week 25: On June 14, 2021, I.W. Harding Construction Co. Inc. is scheduled to continue pouring and finishing concrete sidewalks on the west (even-numbered) side of High Street and on Church Street. Work will proceed toward Union Street. The completion of concrete pouring is dependent on good weather. 

  • Every effort will be made to ensure continuous access to storefronts and residential entrances. In order to achieve this, ramps will be used and pouring will be staggered. To minimize disruption, residents and business people who have the opportunity to enter their property from secondary entrances are requested to do so.

  • During the pouring of concrete sidewalks in the project area, vehicular access may be limited. There is a required three (3) day cure time before vehicles may pass over new sidewalks. New sidewalks should be ready for pedestrians approximately 24 hours after pouring.

    • Impact(s): “Spot” No Parking zones will be in place during work, affecting multiple parking spaces at each work site. Two-way vehicular traffic will be maintained throughout the entire work zone. Parking will be mainly available on the east (odd-numbered) side of High Street as work progresses on the west side of the project area.

      The width of the roadway may be reduced near each location, with traffic control by police detail officers. All motorists - and motorcyclists, especially - are advised to use caution while traveling on High Street and Church Street. Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes and should expect minor delays.
  • The contractor is anticipated to complete the installation of new curbing on Church Street in the west side of the project area.

  • New decorative lighting fixtures will be installed in the project area where sidewalks have been finished.
