Mt. Auburn Street Reconstruction

 

ROADWAY PAVING NOTICE
Mt. Auburn Street from Gibson Street to Fresh Pond Parkway
November 8, 5 AM until Complete

The city’s contractor, D’Allessandro Corporation, will perform roadway paving on the following streets on Mt. Auburn Street from Gibson Street to Fresh Pond Parkway.  Paving will take place on Sunday, November 8, in preparation for final roadway paving. Work hours for the paving operation will be 5 AM until Complete and street closures and parking restrictions will be in effect.

Due to overhead MBTA wires only being deenergized on Sundays, this severely limits our access to the area and work schedule, requiring the roadway paving and subsequent paving operations to be performed on Sundays.  DPW has coordinated with both the MBTA and the Mount Auburn Hospital ahead of this planned work.

What to Expect During Roadway Paving:

  • Streets will be closed to vehicular traffic during paving operations.
  • During the paving operations, detours and road closures will be in place while crews perform the work. Police details and signage will be onsite to direct drivers.
  • There cannot be any cars parked on the street during the paving operation. Please be sure to check “No Parking” signs to avoid being ticketed and towed.
  • When work occurs directly in front of driveways or entryways, the contractor will coordinate access directly with residents.
  • City services will continue uninterrupted and emergency vehicles will maintain access at all times.
  • Please note that all operations are weather dependent and may be rescheduled.

If you have any questions regarding construction, please contact Dan Riviello, Community Relations Manager, at 617.349.4825 / driviello@cambridgema.gov or Hussein Musa, Project Manager at 617.349.4831 / hmusa@cambridgema.gov.  If you have any special needs or disability, please contact us to arrange for special accommodations that may be necessary.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience you may experience during this construction, and thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
