    Main Street Construction

    The City is embarking on a top-to-bottom reconstruction of Main Street. This is not simply a repaving project. We’re building a Main Street that is not just a way to drive from Point A to Point B…but a 21st century Main Street, that embraces modern urban design philosophies, that is built to encourage parking your car and walking to multiple experiences, all throughout downtown. 

    Due to this project, there will be construction activity happening along Main Street. Visit the Main Street project page to view the construction going on in the designated work areas.

    Plantation Street Bridge Project

    Public Notice: Since November 4, 2020, the Plantation Street Bridge had its work zone shifted such that the bridge served one-way traffic only going northbound towards Belmont Street (Route 9). Crews completed construction of the west side of Plantation Street Bridge. On Friday January 22, 2020 at 5 p.m., the bridge reopened to two-way traffic.

    MassDOT is working on a project to reconstruct the Plantation Street Bridge at Aitchison Street. The bridge will be widened to include three travel lanes, shoulders and bicycle lanes. The project will also make improvements to Plantation Street from Plantation Terrace to Warden Street. The project is scheduled to be complete in the Spring of 2021.
