Representatives from the state Department of Transportation and project engineers joined to provide a short presentation and update on this project. The installation of new and refurbished light poles was to take place last week, while most of the road and sidewalk work has been completed as well as the installation of new traffic signals. There is still electrical work to be completed in order to activate the new traffic signals and switch over to a brand new traffic control system. The project is on schedule for completion in May 2022. For project updates, please visit: www.mass51.com. You can also follow MassDOT on twitter @MassDOT.
