MassDOT: Rt 140 Road Construction Status Update

Rt 140 Road Construction Status Update

9/24/19

The Town had received many inquiries as to when the road work will be completed on State Highway Route 140 at the Exit 17 off ramp intersection. The Town has contacted the state to receive this update.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is anticipating completion of paving Rt 140 by the end of this week or early next week, weather dependent.

The pavement will need to cure for 3 days before painting and striping. Once the pavement has been striped, paving of Apron/Entrances will commence.

The state is looking at completing the entire project within roughly two weeks.

Downtown Project Update #16

November 6, 2015

"MassDOT was unable to pave Thursday night. Their plan is to finish West Central Street and Summer Street on Monday during the day. 
They will keep one lane of traffic open on West Central Street so they will not need to detour traffic. 
If anyone has a question, please feel free to reach out to the DPW Director, Brutus Cantoreggi or Town Engineer, Michael Maglio at 508-553-5500 or Jeffrey Nutting, Town Administrator at 508-520-4949."

PS - I think this meant to say "unable to complete paving" - if it wasn't MassDOT, somebody paved Thursday but clearly did not complete the job

Emmons St closed today for paving


We will have to close Emmons St at 7:00 am tomorrow. 
I told Mike to order extra details so we will have one at Emmons/Main, Emmons/School, School/Union and Union/140 to properly direct traffic. 
Detour signs will be properly placed. Traffic coming 140 SB will be placed in the NB lane first. That way we can get people in and out of Davis Thayer better. 
We should be completed, or at least out of their entrance way by 2:00 pm
