Duct bank construction continues at our work sites on Salem Street and Montrose Avenue this week. Barring inclement weather this week’s schedule calls for construction Monday through Friday. Allowable work hours remain 7:00AM to 7:00PM.
Please note that the traffic management plan for the Salem Street work site remains the same–requiring an alternating two-way traffic pattern facilitated by police details during work hours.
The traffic management plan for the work site on Montrose Avenue will continue to require the street to be closed to through-traffic. That said, emergency vehicles and local residents will be allowed access with the assistance of police details.
Over the next week neighbors can expect to see:
- Salem Street between the New Salem Street and Salem Street split and Patriot Circle: Excavation and duct bank installation
- Montrose Avenue between Whittier Road and Wakefield Junction Substation Driveway: Excavation and duct bank installation
Traffic Management Updates:
- Salem Street between the New Salem Street and Salem Street split and Patriot Circle: Alternating two-way traffic pattern facilitated by police details
- Montrose Avenue between Whittier Road and Wakefield Junction Substation Driveway: Detours at Salem Street-Montrose Avenue and Water Street-Montrose Avenue intersections.
We kindly ask drivers and those on foot to exercise caution when approaching these active work areas to minimize risks to personal safety, and to avoid any interference with construction.
As construction continues, please note that the Wakefield Police Department has the option to modify the traffic management plans based on their judgment and expertise, including street closures and traffic detours to ensure the safety of the general public. As always, police details will be present at our work sites to facilitate vehicle and pedestrian traffic management. Please continue to exercise caution when approaching these active work areas to minimize risks to personal safety, and to avoid any interference with construction.
Please know that we remain committed to prioritizing public health as well as the health of employees and contractors. National Grid has taken several steps to modify our business practices and daily operations to protect the communities in which we work. We have enacted additional policies and guidelines for our field and office personnel that are in line with the Commonwealth’s Guidelines and Procedures for construction as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines
