Construction Project Updates
Construction in Ashland is certainly underway. Crews continue to work on the Route 126/ Pond Street Revitalization Project and on the Downtown Revitalization Project. As traffic is significantly impacted around town, please give yourself extra time to get where you are going, and be patient. Crews are doing the best they can to get you through quickly and safely. Remember, all businesses are open during construction.
July 23, 2021 Updates:
Downtown Revitalization Project
This upcoming week, the Gioioso crews will be working on Main Street from Pine Hill Road to the railroad tracks this week installing the duct bank between structures. Crews are working at the Pleasant and Main intersection through Monday with one lane of traffic open.
Route 126/ Pond Street Revitalization Project
Gas Main Upgrade
Day: In the upcoming weeks, crews will be on Butterfield Drive and Eliot street tying in gas services. They will also work on the side streets, Algonquin, Nickerson, and Tufts.
Night: Unfortunately, night work must continue as the rain has delayed progress. Expect construction on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 7 PM to 5 AM for the next two weeks.
Please note, the contractor has repaired the trench near the Ashland Ale House and other sections on Pond Street.
Roadway Reconstruction Project
The contractor will continue to be working between the Holliston Town line and Eliot Street on Route 126. They have made substantial progress with the new drainage but the progress is slow due to the tremendous amount of ledge. Unfortunately, blasting in this area is not an option, so it is a tedious process. Crews expect to begin paving this area by mid-August.
