DPW: Summer Street Sidewalk Construction resumes Mar 28th

The Summer Street sidewalk construction project is scheduled to resume on or about March 28th, 2019. Construction activities include excavation, sidewalk construction, curb installation, walkway/driveway restoration and roadway paving. The Town of Maynard has contracted with Detour Construction LLC to complete the construction services.

Locations are as follows:

  • Summer Street – Brooks Street to Apple Ridge Road

Once construction is started, no on-street parking will be allowed until all construction activities are completed in the area.

Homeowners on the affected roadway may temporarily not be able to access their driveway with vehicles when crews are excavating and pouring sidewalks directly adjacent to the property. Homeowners will be notified 24 hours in advance of driveway access interruption via a flyer that will be distributed individually.

Individual driveway work may take 2-3 days to complete at each location. Temporary walkways will be installed over the new sidewalk while it cures to allow for pedestrian access to each property during construction. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Construction will start at Patti Lane on March 28th, and will continue through the above listed streets. Construction is scheduled to continue through April, weather permitting.

If you have any questions please contact the Maynard Department of Public Works at 978-897-1317 or DPW@townofmaynard.net.

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.

Mandatory Outdoor Water Use Ban In Effect

Public Works Director Aaron Miklosko announces that the Town of Maynard will have a mandatory outdoor water use restriction beginning Monday June 11th, 2018, and will remain in effect until further notice.

The water restriction is the result of an effort to preserve the town’s water supply following a recent mechanical failure in one of its water production wells.

Under this Water Conservation Restriction, all nonessential outdoor use of water is prohibited at all times. The conservation order will be strictly enforced by local officials.

The elevated conservation restriction will help ensure the town can provide an adequate supply of water for drinking and fire protection.
