For the remainder of the week – which includes the first day of school and the beginning of the Labor Day getaway – Belmont Center will be a good place to actively avoid.
Beginning Monday Aug. 31 and lasting until Friday, Sept. 4, General Contractor Charles Contracting will begin road pulverization and full-depth reconstruction for
- a portion of Concord Avenue, westbound between the Leonard Street and the Belmont Police headquarters on Pleasant Street, and
- along Leonard Street from Alexander Avenue southbound towards the underpass.
During construction, the roadways will be closed between 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Detours around the work site will be in effect at these times. After 4 p.m., typical traffic flow will be restored and the road will be made passable.
For any questions or concerns about the project please contact Robert Bosselman, resident engineer in the Belmont Office of Community Development, at 617-993-2657.
