Boston Road Reconstruction - Updated 2/3/2023

2-3-2023 Update:  The Contractor’s winter work involves installing new drainage structures and pipe.  The Contractor is currently working on Heritage Rd.  National Grid Gas is performing some gas pipe relocation on Boston Rd.  MassDOT anticipates new utility pole installation project wide to start in February.


Please be advised construction on the Boston Road Reconstruction Project has commenced. Construction layout and test pits for utility relocations have begun, initial site walks have been conducted, and advanced warning signs have been installed at project limits.  Tree clearing, utility pole relocation and some drainage work will occur throughout the remainder of 2022. During the project, two-way travel along Boston Road will be maintained.  At times, police details will limit traffic around the work crews to one travel lane at a time.  Motorists driving through the corridor during the midday should expect a delay in travel time.


Stay up to date on the progress of the Boston Road Reconstruction Project by checking out our project page link below.  We have included the Contractor's 3-week look ahead schedule and a copy of the project plans.  The 3-week look ahead schedule will be updated regularly.

This work is part of a $11 million transportation improvement project and is currently scheduled to be completed in 2026.
