Roadway Construction Update

May 31

Philip Street Bridge project has been completed. MassDOT has conducted their final inspection of the bridge and has given the approval to have it reopened. We are finishing a small paving project nearby and will reopen the bridge this evening.


Week of June 4th 
North Street Roadway Construction Project was delayed from last construction season. The limits of the project is North Street from Pine Street to the Dover Town Line, including the Harding Street/West Street intersection. This project consists of milling the roadway 1.5” deep and repaving the top surface course with a 1.5” Superpave aggregate mix. There will also be adjustment work for all of the utility structures in that area and completed with traffic markings. P.J. Keating will be the pavement contractor responsible for the project. (same contractor we had last year doing the center of town paving on Route 109) They had an opening for the week of June 4th to begin construction work. If we did not take this opportunity, we may not be able to get the work done until after school opens in September. The work is scheduled to commence on Wednesday, June 6th and continue into the following week for completion.

Crack Sealing Operations will begin on many roadways throughout the town intermittently as the contractor has availability.

Week of June 15th
Lorusso Corp. will begin milling and paving large patches on Route 109 from Brook Street towards the Town Line of Dover heading East. These patches are necessary to keep the integrity of the road. If funds allow, we plan to put a
preventative pavement surface on top of this section next construction season.


Rubber Chip Seal process will begin. This type of process will lay the stones with the emulsion but would be able to be swept within 20 minutes after the process to eliminate any long-term issues residents may have with stone buildup.

Week of July 4th
DPW is tentatively scheduled to put a preventative pavement surface on the section of Route 109 from Causeway Street to The Millis Town Line, West towards TRESCA.

Massachusetts Department of Transportation is scheduled to replace the railroad crossing on Cottage Street.
