Roadway Construction Notices

Roadway construction began the week of October 15, 2018. Construction activities include excavation, sewer pipe installation, manhole repair and roadway paving. The Town of Maynard has contracted with N. Granese & Sons, Inc to complete the roadway and sewer construction services.

UPDATE 17-Jan-2019: Please be advised, the 129 Parker Street Downstream Sewer Project is progressing and construction will move onto Powder Mill Road/Route 62 beginning Monday 01/28/2019.  We will be replacing large sections of water and sewer main that are located at the centerline of the roadway. We will work as quickly as possible through this area, but due to the location of the pipe in the roadway, both lanes of traffic will be closed during active construction. Powder Mill Road/Route 62 between Waltham Street and the Maynard Elks Lodge will be closed to thru traffic from 7:00AM-3:00PM Monday – Friday during construction. Residents and patrons of local businesses will be able to access their properties. Public Works is working together with the Police Department to post detour signs and informational message boards ahead of the construction on Powder Mill Road/Route 62. The Maynard Police Department will be detouring traffic around the construction area (see the recommended detour route options below.)  The School Department has been notified and is working with Dee Bus services on school bus route modifications. We anticipate the construction on Powder Mill Road/Route 62 to take seven weeks, weather dependent.
