The Middlesex Turnpike project will begin in the Spring. Tree removal has already started. Future updates will be posted below!
Town Manager's Report:
A meeting was held with Manning Road and Middlesex Turnpike Residents about the upcoming $37 million Turnpike project. Although it is too late to send the project back to the drawing board we were able to address some of their concerns and came away with a few other action items:
The project schedule will be posted biweekly on Town’s website.
Tree removal schedules will be reviewed to ensure removal schedule accommodates residences privacy concerns as much as possible.
The Rock walls will be relocated.
The Town will explore extending the sidewalk on the northerly side of Manning Road. The town is looking at an option to install a vinyl slatted CLF along the exposed areas on residential properties.
The Town will assess hydrant needs on turnpike in that area and incorporate into Hydrant Replacement Program.
