Construction Project Update to BOS – April 1, 2014
The following schedule is weather
Drainage pipes crossing Nashua
and Windham Roads are complete with the Main Street crossing
scheduled for Wednesday, 4/2.
Road base “boxing” along Marsh
near Police Dept driveway (back entrance to Town Hall) is
estimated to be complete by Wednesday, April 8th.
Acorn work to begin during 2nd
week of April (assuming current flooding has subsided)
Connection to Woodbury to be
Pavement to be removed between
Woodbury cut over and intersection of Old Bridge and Acorn
2nd detention pond to
be installed in that area per plan
Sections of this area will be
gravel for a short period of time
Once Acorn is open with 2-way
traffic, vehicles will be diverted through the existing
roundabout and vehicles travelling along Marsh towards the new
roundabout location will be directed along a widened portion of
Marsh in front of the old fire station lot. Portions of this
detour will be gravel.
The new roundabout will be built
in the same way as the existing one with traffic being diverted
around one side, then the other until it is fully constructed.
The construction will last
throughout the Spring and Summer with constantly changing
detours and traffic patterns. Divers must anticipate delays and
will need to closely follow signs and flaggers.
Continental hopes to be finished
with major construction by late July. The traffic circulation
utilizing both roundabouts is expected to be fully functional by
this date. There may be additional minor work items remaining,
i.e. final wearing course paving, sidewalk installation,
curbing, final signage and landscaping, but these items are
expected to be completed by the Fall timeframe at the outside.
Any club or organization planning
to hold a road race, parade or other event in or passing though
the Town Center construction area is encouraged to coordinate
with Pelham Police Department earlier than usual so alternate
routes and or detours can be accommodated.
Continental is already aware of the September Old Home
Day event/parade but anticipate no issues since construction is
likely to be concluded by then.
