The Department of Public Works completed roadway restoration/improvements on Concord Street from Old Connecticut Path (OCP) to Cherry Street (3,200 LF) in early June 2019. Work included new pavement, new drainage on the east side of the roadway between OCP and Hardy Street, the realignment of the intersection of Concord and Summer Street, granite curbing and new cement concrete sidewalks, and ADA compliant wheelchair ramps.
The DPW utilized an innovative pavement mix, Polymer Modified Asphalt, for the first time in the City of Framingham on Concord Street. This mix is designed to reduce the amount and severity of pavement distresses and to increase service life. The DPW will monitor the performance of this pavement product for future applications.
Inlaid thermoplastic pavement markings were also used for the first time in the City on this project. This involves grinding the newly placed bituminous concrete pavement to create a recess for thermoplastic markings, to prevent plow damage and allow for better visibility.
