 CIP FY 2020-FY 2024 Road Program:

In 2019, the City will use the latest data to place the city’s roadway network into a repair category which will show the type of repair to be performed on the roadway. We have found that the repair schedule for given street can change significantly. While we have a list of streets in priority order, it needs to be checked frequently by residents. Changes are made, for example, when we learn new information about when water, sewer, stormwater or NGrid repairs will be done. Please check the 5-Year Roads Program list below for the most current listing for the next five years. see listing

DEDHAM AND NAHANTON STREET UPDATE 09/05/2019:

National Grid is continuing to perform a gas main replacement along Dedham Street as well as moving a regulator pit from the island to be relocated further down Nahanton Street. This work is expected to be completed by September 30th. This work requires intermittent closures and detours that affect traffic on Nahanton and Dedham Streets. (Newton Police determine all detours and road closures)

Closures and/or detours will continue through Friday, September 6th on Nahanton Street. You should continue to expect delays while traveling on Dedham Street through September 30th associated with the NGrid work.

Once NGrid has completed their work, we anticipate final paving and pavement markings on Dedham Street to be installed in October.

Additionally, as part of the City’s Accelerated Pavement Management Program, Nahanton Street from Dedham Street to the Needham Line will be paved using a Bonded Wearing Course the week of September 16th.

Bonded Wearing Course is a high performance thin (5/8” to 3/4”) hot mix overlay that consists of a single-step placement of spray applied polymer modified asphalt emulsion immediately ahead of gap-graded hot mix asphalt. The treatment provides a new paved wearing surface that seals the existing pavement, preserves curb reveal, and creates a high skid resistant surface that will not de-laminate.

We apologize for the disruption and appreciate your patience as we work to complete this important infrastructure improvement.

Please Note: All work is subject to weather and other work conditions.
