It’s been delayed for about a year but beginning this morning, Friday, Aug. 19; Belmont Center will undergo the paving of its main and secondary roadways, a major part of the $2.8 million reconstruction of the town’s major business hub.
Watertown’s Charles Contracting will begin the final paving on Friday, Aug. 19, in the morning, focusing on side streets away from Leonard Street. The morning commute through the center will experience “minor delays” only, according to town officials.
Starting Monday night, Aug. 22, the remainder of Belmont Center including Leonard Street will be paved. Weather permitting, work is expected to occur between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Aug. 22, 23, 24, and be completed by Thursday, Aug. 25.
Belmont Center businesses will be open and accessible during their regular hours.
Access to driveways in the work area may be restricted, so residents should park away from the project limits if you will need access to your vehicle overnight.
If residents have any questions, contact Belmont’s Resident Engineer Robert Bosselman at 617-993-2657.
