The $12.5 million Route 9 Resurfacing Project has resumed, funded by the federal stimulus American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) as part of Governor Deval Patrick's Massachusetts recovery plan.
The project includes resurfacing of approximately 7.8 miles of Route 9 from Walnut Street in Natick to the Framingham/Southborough line. The work also includes the ramps at Route 27 in Natick and Route 126 in Framingham. The project began in 2010 and will be completed by June 2011.
Beginning this month, the contractor is cleaning catch basins and drainage pipes throughout the project, seen at left.
Other work includes completion of sidewalks and wheel chair ramps, curbing, guard rail, and signs. Milling work on Route 126 over Route 9 is expected to begin in late April.
Overnight lane closures Sunday-Friday, 8pm-5am, will be posted at various locations throughout the corridor as work continues.
