What is happening with the construction on Main Street in North Woburn? You asked, and we turned to the Department of Public Works for the answer.
One reader asked via email why construction is being done from October 2 through October 30, as is indicated on signs in the area.
Superintendent of Public Works Jay Duran said preliminary construction is underway as a 98-unit condominium complex is replacing an old six-inch water and sewer main and replacing it with a ten-inch main.
Duran said the exact impact on traffic will be determined by the Woburn Police Department. They will likely be able to allow one-way traffic on the road and potentially two-way traffic, but may detour drivers down Elm Street depending how much room officers determined the construction is taking up.
Though Duran suggested drivers seek alternate routes if possible during the construction, he said impact will be minimal if all goes according to plan.
“We’re really strict on our permits and planning,” said Duran. “We’ve done our best to minimize impact on the residents and the people who use that road.”
