The resurfacing of three roads in Quincy Point is set to start Thursday, according to Public Works Commissioner Al Grazioso.
Resurfacing on the portion of Elm Street between Washington and Hancock Streets is set to begin Thursday, Grazioso said in a letter to area residents and business owners.
“Work remaining under this contract will include the placement of a micro-seal finish coat and pavement line restriping. The restriping is scheduled to occur a week or two after the micro-surfacing work,” Grazioso said.
Work on Elm Street will take place Mondays through Saturdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. On-street parking will not be allowed during that time. Nighttime traffic restrictions could be in place as well as the project progresses.
Resurfacing of two more streets – Washington Street and School Street – will begin Sept. 18, Grazioso said. The resurfacing on those roads will take place between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays, Grazioso said. On-street parking will not be allowed during those times, and nighttime traffic restrictions could also be in place if needed.
The stretch of Washington Street between McGrath Highway and Washington Court will be resurfaced; the portion of the roadway between Washington Court and the Fore River Bridge was resurfaced earlier this summer. On School Street, resurfacing will take place between Franklin and Hancock Streets.
“Work under this contract will include an overlay of hot mix asphalt, the raising of existing catch basins, manhole covers and frames, gas and water gate valves, gas and water service boxes, and micro-seal finish coating,” Grazioso said. “Roadway preparation consisting of existing line grinding and street sweeping will occur a few days prior to the more extensive pavement work.”
