Public meeting with construction team is May 14


Teel St. Resident Jennifer Susse addresses the construction team at last year’s public meeting.

If you do not subscribe to the Town’s Mass. Ave. rebuild notifications (and you should), you may not know that the project team will hold its second public meeting about the progress of work at 7 pm on Thursday, May 14, at the Thompson School.

Otherwise, consider this just another reminder.

The notice for this meeting implies that construction is ahead of schedule.

If last year’s meeting is any example, this will be a chance for residents to ask questions and to raise concerns about the management, scheduling, and impact of construction work and related issues.

At the June 16 2014 meeting representatives from MassDOT, the state agency that is managing the project, and managers from the lead contractor, J.H. Lynch and Sons, presented the plan of work and took questions and comments from the public.

Town officials also participated. About 60 residents attended.

At that time the construction team said it expected to finish all heavy construction work by mid to late fall, with landscaping work and the completion of the project slated for spring of 2016.

One of the last tasks before landscaping will be the resurfacing of Mass. Ave. which will take place at night and which the project team had said would take place in October or November.

The meeting notice from MassDOT suggest that construction work, which was slightly behind schedule at the end of 2014, may be gaining on last year’s projections.

The notoce refers to “construction operations scheduled for the summer of 2015 including the resurfacing of Massachusetts Avenue” (emphasis added).

We’ll see.
