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.
This project is currently in the bidding process and will decide on a general contractor during the early spring of 2018; construction will commence shortly thereafter. The project work is expected to cover two construction seasons (2018 and 2019).
