Note: Updates are based upon two-week “look-aheads” provided by the project contractor, I.W. Harding Construction Co. Inc., of West Bridgewater, MA. Schedule is subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances, including weather, delivery of materials, subcontractor availability, or unknown subsurface conditions.
WEEK 6: BEGINNING MONDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2020;
- Monday-Thursday: Scheduled construction will include the continued installation of drainage on High Street and Church Street. New drainage shall provide adequate facility within the downtown area for collecting, conveying, and disposing of stormwater in a manner which will ensure proper protection of the roadway and the areas adjacent thereto. The definitive plan shall also improve conditions for groundwater recharge.
- Impact: “Spot” No Parking zones will be in place during work, affecting several parking spaces at each location. The roadway will be reduced to one lane during work, with traffic control by police detail officers. Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes and should expect minor delays. Direct abutters will be notified as soon as excavation locations are known. All motorists - and motorcyclists, especially - are advised to use caution while traveling through the work zone.
- The installation of drainage within the project area is anticipated to be completed by October 30, 2020. The full-depth area reconstruction of High Street will begin during the week of November 2, 2020, following drainage installation.
SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES
It is encouraged that residents support local businesses in the downtown area. Visible, temporary easy-to-read signage is on-site to help customers access the stores, shops, and restaurants in the project area, so they will be alerted that businesses are open during construction.
When it comes to supporting the local businesses in the downtown area, you can do a lot of good even if you are unable to visit the business in-person. Follow businesses in the area on social media and make sure you share their deals, sales or announcements so that you can network and help them get a wider net for people who will be interested in shopping there. Buying local helps to make our community stronger, benefiting neighbors in a network of economic and social relationships, and contributing to local interests in Clinton.
