107

Editor’s note: The town announced Tuesday that it updated its plans for paving work. The updates have been included here.

The town announced Monday that in preparation for the Oct. 11 Boston Marathon, the Main Street Corridor Project will focus on cleanup, roadway/sidewalk repairs and paving Main Street from Pleasant Street to Ash Street, starting Tuesday.

The work will require one lane of alternating traffic through the work areas as well as a detour being set up this Wednesday, closing the eastbound lane of Main Street just east of the 85/135 intersection to Hayden Rowe Street. Update: An additional detour has been added for Thursday, and the detour route has been modified.

During this work, on-street parking will not be accessible where milling or paving operations are occurring, the town announced. Driveways and vehicular access to businesses will be temporarily blocked while these operations pass by these locations.

Following is a schedule of the work to be performed:

Tuesday, Sept. 28 (Milling of Main Street — Ash to Pleasant)
Milling of Main Street will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 28, at the Main Street/Ash Street intersection and continue westbound to Pleasant Street. The operations will then turn around and continue milling operations eastbound back to Ash Street.

Paving operations of both eastbound and westbound lanes on Main Street will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 29, starting at the 135/Ash Street intersection, including Marathon Way, and working toward the 135/85 intersection.
