Street and sidewalk restoration for New Street and Concord Lane is tentatively scheduled to begin Spring 2016.

The streetscape improvements for New Street were developed through a community process focused on making improvements to pedestrian and bicycle access; reconstructing the deteriorate roadway; and. enhancing the area with new street trees.

The New Street streetscape improvements will be constructed under a contract that will include sewer separation work on Concord Lane and pump station improvement work on New Street. This contract was awarded to Barletta Heavy Construction in March 2015.

For more information about this project, please contact Elise Curley, Community Relations Representative at 617.498.4719/ or Catherine Day Woodbury, Project Manager at 617.349.4818/
