Hopkinton’s Department of Public Works announced that the 2023 Pavement Management Plan roadwork is tentatively scheduled to begin sometime after July 4. Information will be released as each project moves forward.
The following streets are scheduled to be resurfaced this summer: Appaloosa Circle (full length), Breakneck Hill Road (full length), Gibbon Road (full length), Glen Road (Lumber Street to Breakneck Hill Road) and Ridge Road (full length).
Once work begins on each project, drivers should expect delays, seek alternate routes when possible and plan accordingly. Individuals also should not park on the street, as this will interfere with the contractor’s ability to complete the needed work.
Under the town’s road opening permit policy, no permit will be granted for a period of five years on newly paved streets except in the case of an emergency. Anyone considering any utility work that requires excavation within the town’s right of way on any of the listed streets, must complete the work by July 4.
The DPW also announced that roadwork is scheduled for West Main Street between No. 9 (near Whalen Road) and No. 72 (just before the Dunkin’ entrance) from Tuesday through Thursday of this week. Signs will guide drivers to detours using Wood Street and Elm Street. School buses and emergency vehicles will be allowed to pass through.
Additionally, this Wednesday from 7 a.m.-5 p.m., Wilson Street will be closed from Kruger Road to the Ashland town line to replace a falling drainpipe. Residents are asked to seek alternate routes.
