PROJECT UPDATE - 11/4/16

General Information – There will be no further road reclamation or sidewalk reclamation happening this construction season.  This type of work will commence again in the spring of 2017.  Currently the contractor is setting curbing and pouring sidewalks and making the site safe for the winter.  Updated Phases for the remaining 2017 work will be released this fall/early winter and posted on the project website. 

Phase 1 (The new Middle School on Cabot St to Herrick St) – Signs are being installed the week of October 31.  Exposed tree wells will be secured for the winter months to prevent tripping hazards.  Light pole pedestals will be clearly marked and covered until the light poles are delivered and installed. 

Phase 2 (Cabot St: Herrick Street to Gloucester Crossing) – Finishing up the last conduit work in the exposed sidewalk areas and pouring concrete sidewalks in the next couple of weeks.  Exposed tree wells will be secured for the winter months to prevent tripping hazards.  Light pole pedestals will be clearly marked and covered until the light poles are delivered and installed. 

Phase 3 (Rantoul St: Southernmost part of Rantoul St to Pleasant St) – Over the next few weeks the final curbs, sidewalks, light pole mounts will be built and completed.  Detouring at the southernmost portion of Rantoul Street will be necessary at times.  After the sidewalks are poured, tree wells will be secured for the winter months to prevent tripping hazards.  Light pole pedestals will be clearly marked and covered until the light poles are delivered and installed.  Road striping will happen at the end of November. 

Phase 4A (Rantoul St: Pleasant St to Wallis St) – Over the next few weeks the final curbs, sidewalks, light pole mounts will be built and completed.  Detouring at the southernmost portion of Rantoul Street will be necessary at times.  After the sidewalks are poured, tree wells will be secured for the winter months to prevent tripping hazards.  Light pole pedestals will be clearly marked and covered until the light poles are delivered and installed.  Road striping will happen at the end of November. 

Phase 4 (Elliott St: From Cabot St to Rantoul St) – The roadway asphalt base layer and binder layer were completed on November 1.  The reconstruction of the curbs and sidewalks will not take place this construction season and will be done in the spring.  Asphalt will be put down in front of driveways to minimize drops/bumps transitioning to the road.   The existing sidewalks will also be worked on to ensure they are safe for pedestrian travel over the winter.   Road striping will happen at the end of November. 

The Phase 4 road reconstruction on Rantoul St (from Elliott St to Gloucester Crossing) will be postponed until 2017.  However, during the month of November subsurface utility work will be performed, which at times could cause some traffic impacts. 

Phase 5 (Wallis to Federal) – Full depth reconstruction will be postponed until 2017.   However, over the winter subsurface utility work will be performed, which at times could cause some traffic impacts. 

Comcast – Comcast is completing their work on Rantoul Street and should be fully completed for the entire project in the next week (weather and field conditions permitting).

Tree Planting – Tree plantings will likely occur in two phases.  The areas ready for plantings in the spring will be planted and then at the conclusion of the road work in the fall the remaining sections will be planted.
