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.
A major element of the North Concord Street project is scheduled to start on Monday, June 24th and requires a complete closure of Concord Street. Traffic will be detoured onto A Street. Only local traffic will be permitted to exit or enter Concord Street. The major excavation and installation of a new culvert is expected to take 7 days. The contractor will work from 7AM to 7PM daily until the street can be opened to traffic. A copy of the traffic management plan can be viewed here
