Weymouth Route 53

Work is underway along Route 53 in Weymouth at the intersection of Middle Street and Winter Street.

The MassDOT $2.3 million federally-funded project will reconstruct two Route 53 Middle Street intersections, at Washington St and Winter St. 

The work will include new pavement, new sidewalks, updated traffic lights and signals and improved accessibility for pedestrian traffic.

August work includes drainage, excavation, and sidewalk removal.  Temporary accessibility ramps will be installed during the construction. The project began in July 2011 and is expected to be completed in August 2012.   For the latest information on the project and any traffic impacts, visit the Weymouth Route 53 web page.
