FRAMINGHAM – Detours on Edgell Road will return on Friday, September 20, said Framingham DPW Director Bob Lewis.
Traffic traveling south on Edgell Road will be detoured to Belknap Road. Passenger vehicles will routed down Grove Street to Vernon Street and back to Edgell Road. Larger vehicles will be routed to Mill Street, then left on Pleasant Street and left on Vernon Street, then back onto Edgell Road.
Traffic traveling north on Edgell road will be allowed to continue un-detoured on Edgell Road.
The Edgell Road detour is precipitated by Eversource Gas needing to replace their aging infrastructure, explained Director Lewis.
The Eversource project needs to be completed before a Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) project at the intersection of Edgell & Central can begin, explained Director Lewis.
The Edgell Road detour is intended to be during the daytime hours only, said Director Lewis.
The the contractor is limited to starting at 9 a.m. and no limits at the end of the day, said the DPW Director.
“The daily detours are expected to last approximately 2 weeks to completion,” said Director Lewis. “Obviously their work is weather dependent and the detour schedule could be longer if they run into unforeseen conditions.”
