MASSDOT Advisory: Groveland-Route 113 (Main Street)

My office received the following advisory from MassDOT:

MassDOT: Groveland – Route 113 (Main Street) Daytime lane closures beginning Monday, September 16

GROVELAND – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has announced that daytime lane closures on Route 113 (Main Street) in Groveland from the West Newbury town line to Elm Park will begin on Monday, September 16, and continue through the fall. These daytime traffic impacts will be implemented each day between 7 a.m., and 4 p.m., and are necessary in order to allow crews to safely and effectively conduct construction operations. Travelers should note that there will be a single lane of traffic maintained through the work zone during these times. Detours and alternating traffic may be used as required during some construction operations. Appropriate signage, law enforcement details and advanced message boards will be in place to guide drivers through the work area. Drivers are encouraged to make informed decisions before heading out onto the roadways. Those traveling through the area should expect delays, reduce speed and use caution. The schedule for this work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice. This $1.2 million project includes resurfacing and related safety improvements and is scheduled to be completed in May 2020.
