Construction Update: Week of August 8-12

Work zones will occur along the south side of the street from:

  1.  Work Zone 4B – Muzzey Street to Waltham Street
  2.  Work Zone 3B & 4A - Waltham Street to Conte’s Bike Shop – (minimal)

See the current work-zone maps 

Work will be primarily focused between Muzzey Street and Waltham Street next week. Brick work will begin east of Waltham Street on or around August 22. Additional seating and furniture is being installed on the north side of the street this week and may continue into next week.

Long-range forecasted work


Work in the roadway (pavement patching) will begin in the next few weeks. Curb-to-curb paving is anticipated to take place in late-August and September.

Bike node (connection to Bikeway)

Crews will be rebricking and reconfiguring the walkway from Grain Mill Alley to the bike path beginning August 11. As a result, access to the bike path from this location will be closed. This temporary closure is anticipated to last for a few weeks.

Pedestrian and others will be directed to Depot Square to access the bike path.  Traffic moving in and out of the parking area behind 1709-1787 Mass Ave will be restricted to one way alternating from the Depot Square entrance as they approach the pathway from Grain Mill Alley.

As always, access to businesses will REMAIN OPEN AT ALL TIMES. Please remember to check our interactive map for the latest construction work zones.

We also want to acknowledge all of the business owners who have been so great during this project. You all have been extremely understanding and a pleasure to work with. Thank you for your continued patience as we move toward completion of this project this fall!

The Project in a Nutshell

The Center Streetscape Project includes streets and sidewalks along Massachusetts Avenue from Clarke Street (next to the Library), to near the Police Station Driveway (see map at right).

Reconstruction of the Woburn Street/Massachusetts Avenue intersection is not a part of this project.
