Andover Rte 28 Andover this weekend is celebrating the grand reopening of a one-mile section of Route 28 along Main and North Main Street in downtown Andover.  The $4.5 million project overseen by MassHighway reconstructed Route 28 from Stevens Street just south of the Shawsheen Plaza to Wheeler Street just north of the Phillips  Academy. The project included roadway resurfacing, widening, sidewalk reconstruction, landscaping, traffic signal improvements and period lighting. Construction began in spring 2008.

The project includes new handicapped ramps and bicycle accommodations and will improve traffic flow in a busy area of the town.
