Along Lexington Street: Some Paving, Restricting Parking and More Stop Signs

Photo: Where all the action will be in the next weeks.

Lexington Street will be undergoing some significant changes beginning next week.

• For two days beginning on Tuesday, July 19, E.H. Perkins Construction will be paving the raised intersection on Lexington Street at the intersection of Sycamore Street.

The intersection will be closed to through traffic during the paving operation, according to a press release from Belmont town officials and Perkins, the town’s general contractor. 

Sycamore Street will remain open only to residents of the street, said the release. Detours with signage around the project work zone will be used, “but drivers and residents should expect delays and plan accordingly.”

Those with questions can go to the Pavement Management Program webpage or contact the Office of Community Development for additional information.

• On Monday, July 11, the Belmont Board of Selectmen approved a recommendation from the Traffic Advisory Committee bringing parking restrictions on Chandler Street from the Waltham city line to Lexington Street.

Beginning in the next few weeks, there will be “no parking” 50 feet from Lexington while on the odd-numbered side of Chandler from Lexington to Waltham, there will be a special “no parking” restriction from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. in an attempt to thwarted commuters who park along the street all-day. 

• Lexington Street will soon have two new four-way stop intersections, at Beech and Burnham streets, to slow through traffic along the byway.
