This project will improve approximately 2,500 feet of roadway, provide an upgraded intersection and traffic signals at Dudley Road and new sidewalks and bike lanes along Fountain Street east of Winter Street. Wheelchair ramps and driveway aprons conforming to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements will be included. The overall intent is to improve pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular circulation between Winter Street and Waverly Street as well as safety for all users of this corridor.
The project will also improve the existing drainage system and rehabilitate water and sewer systems, as sections of those systems are in disrepair and not meeting current needs.
Ongoing and future work consists of connecting services to the temporary water bypass; removal of existing water main and installation of the new water main; pressure testing and disinfection of the new main (day work, off road); transition of services to the new main; removal of the bypass; and roadway trench restoration.
The majority of the water main work is expected to be completed by June 2018. Final roadway trench restoration is likely to occur in September 2018. No work is anticipated during July and August 2018.
This project is currently on schedule with its originally anticipated completion date.
