This project is intended to compliment the improvements that the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will be making in the downtown area with the Reconstruction of Route 126 (Concord Street) project.
The work envisioned for the common includes relocating the existing railings so sidewalks can be installed along the Park Street and Howard Street sides of the park, and installing new brick walking paths, trees and lighting.
Construction is following the roadway improvements that are almost completed in the Downtown area. The project was bid and awarded. Some tree's have been relocated and newer ones planted in preparation of the Spring, 2017 redesign.
