North Concord Roadway Improvements
The City is advancing phase one of a major roadway restoration project on North Concord Street (Route 126) to improve sidewalk, roadway, and drainage conditions in the area. Proposed improvements will include a new increased-capacity drain and catch basin system, road pavement restoration, granite curbing, new cement concrete sidewalk, ADA compliant wheelchair ramps, new fiber conduit duct bank and geometric/safety improvements at the Concord / A Street intersection.
Localized flooding issues exist near the Concord Street and A Street intersection and on the south side of the Massachusetts Turnpike that require the replacement of three culverts in the vicinity to improve flood water conveyance.
The project is partially funded by a $458,000 federal grant for drainage (culvert) improvements.
Construction activity along Concord Street continued through the last week of November. The project will be completed in 2019 with the implementation of proposed roadway and sidewalk improvements north of Cherry Street. Construction of the remaining drain culvert on Concord Street will be scheduled for the month of July during the high school summer break.
City staff and consultants presented plans for roadway and drainage improvements on Concord Street between School Street and Cherry Street. This project includes an increased-capacity drain and catch basin system, pavement restoration, ADA compliant sidewalks, and safety improvements at the intersection of Concord and A Streets.
