If you are headed out tonight to watch the Red Sox at a local establishment, keep in mind that there will be paving on Edgell Road overnight.
And no trick, the paving will continue on Halloween.
In order to maintain public safety, minimize adverse impacts on emergency vehicle response time, traffic flows and business in general, the contractor will begin the final paving of Edgell Road at 8 p.m. tonight, Oct. 30, said Framingham DPW.
Paving will continue through the overnight and is anticipated to be complete on Halloween October 31.
Traffic will be managed utilizing a one lane alternating traffic pattern for the duration of the work; however, it may be necessary to implement a detour of the southbound traffic traveling on Edgell Road (early Thursday morning), said Framingham DPW.
In the event that a detour of southbound traffic is implemented, vehicles traveling southbound on Edgell Road will be detoured from Edgell Road to Belknap Road, from Belknap Road to Grove Street, from Grove Street to Vernon Street, from Vernon Street to Oak Street, and from Oak Street back onto Edgell Road, an alternate detour has been implemented for truck traffic due to bridge height restrictions, trucks will be directed to continue west on Belknap Road, from Belknap Road to Pleasant Street, from Pleasant Street to Temple Street and from Temple Street to Worcester Road.
Police detail officers will be present to ensure safe vehicular and pedestrian travel. It is anticipated that traffic delays will occur in the area while paving operations are underway, please seek alternate routes. Your patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
