Mass. Street work begins Wednesday

Motorists can expect major street construction beginning Wednesday.

Crews on Wednesday will start milling and overlay work on Massachusetts Street. During the project, motorists will be allowed to drive on Massachusetts during the milling portion of the work, which involves grinding off asphalt. But drivers should expect delays, restrictions in parking and a rough road surface.

During the actual repaving of the street, two-block sections of Massachusetts Street will be closed to traffic. Here’s the schedule, weather permitting:

¢ Massachusetts from Sixth to Eighth streets will close June 9 and reopen June 13.

¢ Eighth Street to 10th Street is scheduled to be closed from June 16 to June 20.

¢ 10th Street to North Park Street is set to be closed from June 23 to June 27.

During the project, sidewalks will remain open, and crews will keep the Ninth Street intersection open to traffic.
