For the next three nights/early mornings, a half-mile stretch of Trapelo Road from Church Street to Flett Road will be under construction.
Beginning tonight, Tuesday, Sept. 16 and lasting until Thursday, Sept. 18, paving and repairs to the roadway will run from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
As with an earlier overnight repaving job in July that effected Trapelo from Lexington and Church streets, the work by contractor Newport Construction is being conducted “under the lights” so to limited the impact on the 30,000 daily commuters that use the road, Glenn Clancy, director of the town’s Office of Community Development told the Belmont Board of Selectmen last week.
And while the town did provide neighbors and residents living along the road a week notice of the work, Belmont Selectman Sami Baghdady advised Clancy that those effected by future overnight work be given a two weeks “heads up” before construction begins.
The work is part of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s $17.2 million Trapelo/Belmont Corridor reconstruction project.
Residents with any concerns on the night work can call Clancy at 617-993-2659 or by e-mail at email@example.com. or Ryan Gleason of Newport Construction at 603-765-2173 during the late night work hours.
