Update: April 22,2022


Parking is extremely limited on Washington Road during this phase of construction. Please use garages and surface lots. Please do continue to patronize our wonderful businesses. This inconvenience is only temporary and when the project is completed, we'll have a more accessible, safer, more enjoyable Uptown. The construction schedule above has been updated.

Update: December 9, 2021


As this project has progressed, the project manager/engineer and contractor are continuously looking for ways to improve efficiency. The contractor has identified an operational improvement to ensure continuity of the project during the cold winter months, and also reduce the amount of time sidewalks will be under construction in front of our Uptown businesses.

Once the contractor has finished work in the current phase (733 Washington Road to Central Square), the sequence of demolition and construction will shift to working on particular items rather than working in particular zones. So instead of removing sidewalks, demolishing planters, doing trenchwork and pouring sidewalks in each area before moving on to another section of sidewalk, contractors will work on the street as a whole in this order:

Remove planters
Complete trenchwork
Upgrade conduit
Replace planters/seating

This work will be done throughout the winter (see map with dates). Completing the work in this order will allow the contractors to make quicker work of the sidewalk demolition, concrete pouring, paver installation and lighting in the spring. Pavers and parking kiosks will continue to be done in phases.



Update: September 29, 2021


Construction has moved across the street, from 733 Washington Road to Alfred Street, as part of the next phase of work. The sidewalk on the even side of the street is back open. For detailed schedule information, review the schedule section above.
