What's new with the Belknap Street Project?  In two words - a lot!  Work crews have made significant progress on the multi-year project that is midway through its 2017 season.

Here's what's on tap for this week:

  • On August 22 and 23, drivers will notice some of the traffic signals with flashing red lights.  The lights will be operating in this manner while the electricians program the new computer software.
  • Oakes Avenue will be closed to allow for construction.

As a general reminder, drivers on Tower Avenue are not allowed to make right or left-hand turns onto Belknap Street;  signs are posted and law enforcement is monitoring the situation.

The Belknap Street project is expected to wrap up for the 2017 season sometime around the beginning of October.  It will resume in the spring of 2018 and is anticipated to be completely done by June 30, 2019.
