Kelley Square Groundbreaking, October 31st

Kelley Square Groundbreaking, October 31st

A Public Information Meeting for the Worcester Kelley Square Improvement Project has been scheduled as follows:

Wednesday, November 20, 6PM, Crompton Collective White Room, 138 Green Street.

MassDOT and its general contractor for the project, J.H. Lynch, will discuss the project’s overall construction phasing, key project milestones which will have an impact on traffic patterns, what to expect with regard to project activities within the next several months, and tools which will be used to keep the public informed about ongoing work and major traffic shifts. A construction phasing fact sheet will be provided at the public meeting.

Between now and the 20th of November, the project’s general contractor will continue coordination with the utilities already present in the area and undertake the following activities:

  • Project-wide installation of catch basins, manholes, and drainage pipes;
  • Tree protection and tree removals around the Dunkin Donuts in Kelley Square, at Arwick Avenue, and at the corners of Vernon and Ward Streets; and,
  • Removal of private signs to allow for road widening at the south side of Madison Street between Washington and Millbury Streets.

These operations will be achieved using small, localized traffic set-ups that will not have significant impacts on day-to-day travel through the square.

Check the project website for more information.
