massdot_highway_logoMassDOT has announced that on April 24 work-related activities will begin on a $7 million project to repair and improve Route 9 throughout the town of Wellesley.

This significant construction project will consist of resurfacing operations, roadway repairs and related work and is expected to be completed this fall.

Construction operations will occur at night during off-peak hours in order to minimize the impact on the traveling public and ensure crews and personnel are able to make improvements to this regionally important roadway. MassDOT operations will be coordinated with scheduled utility work this summer and the full schedule and work hours for this project is expected to be as follows:

April 24 through April 28

  • Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. through 3:30 p.m.: Crews will begin installing construction signage.

 

April 30 through May 12

  • Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. through 3:30 p.m.: Crews will continue installing construction signage.
  • Sunday through Thursday, 8:00 p.m. through 5:30 a.m.:  Operations will consist of adjusting roadway castings to the temporary grade. This work will begin at the Natick town line and work eastward along Route 9 in Wellesley.

 

May 14 through June 16

  • Sunday through Thursday, 8:00 p.m. through 5:30 a.m.:  Operations will consist of milling, paving operations, and adjusting casting. This work will begin on Route 9 eastbound at the Natick town line and continue eastbound towards Cliff Road.
  • No work will occur between Cliff Road and Oakland Street, and crews will then continue working on Route 9 eastbound between Oakland Street and the intersection of Route 9 and Interstate 95.
  • Operations then will shift to Route 9 westbound from the intersection of Route 9 and Interstate 95 towards Oakland Street, and then from Cliff Road to the Natick town line.

Lane closures during these overnight hours will be necessary in order to allow crews and contractors to safely and effectively conduct operations including milling, paving, and casting.

Drivers should consider alternate routes during these overnight hours in order to minimize travel disruptions. Those traveling through these areas should be mindful of potential traffic impacts and should devote their full attention to driving through these active construction zones.

All scheduled work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
