Project Update: December 15, 2022


With the potential for snowfall approaching, we wanted to provide an update to the schedule information shared in last week’s project update.

Please note that barring inclement weather, our crews plan to continue working at our two current work sites on Newport Avenue in the coming weeks. In the event of plowable snowfall or extreme cold, these two crews will be prepared to shift to their work locations to Furnace Brook Parkway (between Hancock Street and Southern Artery).

Regardless of weather, we plan for a third crew to begin duct bank installation near the intersection of Field Street and Morrison Street. This work will begin at the entrance to National Grid’s substation on Field Street and progress up Morrison Street before continuing onto Southern Artery.

While excavation is taking place a portion of Field Street will be closed to through traffic. As construction progresses onto the eastern end of Morrison Street, the western end of the street will remain open for businesses and residents.

Construction hours at these work sites are 7:00am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday.

As always, we ask that drivers and pedestrians remain mindful of lane shifts, posted traffic signage, and the direction of police details stationed around these work zones.

Barring inclement weather or unforeseen conditions, you can expect to see our crews working in the locations below.

Please know that construction is scheduled to minimize the impact on traffic and everyday life; sections of your street will likely only be impacted by the construction for weeks—not years. That said, we understand that construction doesn’t always feel “short-term” when it’s in front of your home or business. As work begins in your area, we will continue to work to mitigate inconveniences that come up to the greatest extent feasible. Please let us know about upcoming deliveries, schedules, and events that could be impacted by work.
