Road Construction Activities: Newton Street/Case's Corner


The Department of Public Works is ready for the reconstruction of Newton Street, from Case's Corner to no. 152. The Wellesley Street entrance from School Street at Case's Corner will also be realigned during this work period.

Weather permitting, road reconstruction work will begin August 5th and is anticipated to be completed by Labor Day. The following work can be anticipated:

  • cold planing existing road surface
  • roads are reclaimed (ground to gravel), graded, and prepped for base course of pavement
  • After base pavement is applied, Wellesley/School Street at Case's Corner alignment changes will be completed
  • curbing, sidewalks, wheelchair ramps installed
  • top course of pavement

During construction, access to abutting properties will be maintained as well as continued access for emergency vehicles. Try to minimize daytime travel in this area and expect delays. There will be short periods of time when the road will be blocked; however, coordination is managed to minimize impacts as much as possible.
