After resequencing the schedule of construction last spring to accommodate full closure during the pandemic shutdown and the public health emergency caused by the Town’s drinking water main collapse, the project team was able to eliminate the two planned closures at the end of 2020.

However, the Town always maintained the option for one final full closure in spring, primarily for the raised crosswalk installation, which required careful curing—not under traffic.

During January and February, the ReThink9 engineers and contractor devised an alternate and creative plan that did not compromise quality and durability while not requiring the full road closure period.

Therefore, no further full closure is required!
