The second phase of the Leicester Street Reconstruction Project calls for the asphalt overlay of Leicester Street between Pine Hill Road and the state-owned bridge over the French River. The intersection of Ennis Road and Leicester Street will be reconstructed, including installation of a new raised median with vertical faced granite curb. The existing sidewalks will be reconstructed and widened. Drainage improvements will include the installation of new drainage structures and pipe network.
Work hours are expected to be from 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Monday – Friday. A minimum of one lane of travel will be maintained on Leicester Street during construction. Therefore, minimal impacts to the traveling public and school transportation are anticipated. DPW will coordinate with the School Department should any accommodations need to be made for school transportation. Access will be maintained for area businesses at all time.
Every effort will be made to limit inconveniences to residents, business owners, and local traffic. For any questions or concerns regarding the project or construction activity please contact the DPW office.
