FRAMINGHAM – Beginning Tuesday, April 17, a detour will be in place on Union Avenue, as crews resume utility and roadway improvements from the Sudbury River Bridge to the Walnut Street intersection, announced Framingham Department ofPublic Works, today, April 12..
Northbound travel (heading toward Route 9) will be permitted through the work zone; southbound traffic will be detoured down Franklin Street and onto Melrose Street to reconnect with Union Avenue.
Over-sized vehicles approaching from Mt. Wayte will also be detoured down Franklin Street and onto Melrose Street to access Union Avenue.
Two-way local traffic traveling between Main Street and the Sudbury River Bridge will be maintained.
The City requests that motorists do not cut through residential side streets or parking lots to circumvent the detour; that type of activity can create traffic issues and unsafe situations for pedestrians, said the DPW alert.
