Roadway Preservation Work in West Cambridge Wednesday, September 20

The City’s Contractor, Indus, will conduct roadway preservation work on Wednesday, September 20. A truck will be spraying the roadway with a plant-based solution called Fog Seal. The solution goes down as a white, almost opaque spray, but once dry, it leaves a transparent “seal” over the pavement. The solution cures in 30-60 minutes and its protective barrier rejuvenates the roadway adding longer service life to the pavement. This work will take one day to complete.

The streets scheduled for preservation on Wednesday, September 20 include:

  • New Street
  • Birch Street
  • Fern Street
  • Alpine Street

  • Corporal Burns Road

All vehicles must be removed from BOTH sides of the roadways listed above by 7a.m. on Wednesday, September 20. Vehicles that are not removed from the work area will be subject to towing.

There will be rolling road closures during this work and detours will be in place. Once each section has cured the roadway will reopen to normal traffic and parking.

Please look for Detour signs, Road Closed signs, and No Parking signs.
