New Phase of Union Avenue Construction Includes Detour Near Framingham Union Hospital

FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham Department of Public Works announced the next phase of utility improvements for the Union Avenue Utility Improvement Project will continue with water, sewer and drainage upgrades between Walnut Street and Linden Street.

Detour signs have been posted to help motorists most efficiently navigate around the work area.

This detour will remain in place 24/7.


To access Framingham Union Hospital from Route 9, please use Franklin Street and connect to Union Avenue via Melrose Street. There is no access to Union Avenue southbound (including the hospital) via Arch Street.

Utility work will continue until mid-November.

This project also includes utility work near Framingham Union Hospital on Evergreen Street, Learned Street, Thurber Street and Myrtle Street, which is anticipated to begin by late June.

The City requests that motorists do not cut through residential side streets or parking lots to evade the detour; that type of activity can create traffic issues and unsafe situations for pedestrians.
