The Route 56/Paxton Street project, under the control and supervision of MassDOT, is scheduled to begin the week of August 27, 2017.   
 
Due to the project start date, MassDOT has informed us that this will be a two-season project, slated for completion in September of 2018. 
 
As you may be aware, some preliminary tree work and signage placement has already started and will be continuing. 
 
As we have discussed, the project includes: 
 
• Repaving Rt 56/Paxton Street from Main Street to Hyland Ave • Improving drainage • Reconstructing existing sidewalks and adding a new sidewalk near the Primary/High Schools • Improving intersection safety through new roadway signage and pavement markings • Installing ADA compliant curb ramps with detectable warning tiles • Enhancing bicycle accommodations 
 
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 508-892-7000.  
 
Sincerely, 
 
 
Kristen L. Forsberg Assistant to the Town Administrator
