Throughout the work zones for Contracts 7 and 8 roads may be temporarily closed during work hours except for one lane alternating traffic for local resident access and buses. Other traffic will be detoured where possible to avoid delays and increase construction site and public safety. Normal construction hours are 7am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
Contracts On-hold till Water is Available:
Contracts 3 and 4 – Water Mains, Landfill Area - Water main construction within the landfill area is complete for the season. Notification flyers will be sent over the next several weeks and months to residents within these contract areas, asking residents to specify their preferred curb stop location along their property line. Flyers are being mailed in a strategic order; do not be concerned if you have not yet received a flyer. If you have a property along Nauset Road, Brackett Road, Schoolhouse Road, Old Orchard Road, or Meetinghouse Road and have not specified your preferred curb-stop location, please call or email (617-657-0279 or email@example.com). Subdivisions in this area should receive notices in the coming weeks.
Contracts 5 and 6 – Water Mains, Route 6 - Water main construction along Route 6 is complete. There will be a flushing program along and adjacent to Route 6 once water is available, with minimal traffic impacts. Work south of the CCNS Visitors Center will resume after Labor Day with water services construction. Final paving of the eastbound travel lane of Route 6 is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2017.
