A caution to drivers in Shrewsbury

Posted by Ralph Ranalli September 12, 2007 01:05 PM


Road and utility work begins this month on Route 9, from Dewey Road east to Maple Avenue.

The project, overseen by MassHighway, will take 18 to 24 months and will include plantings, faux brick cross walks, ornamental traffic signals, and ornamental street lighting, according to a press release from the town manager's office.

The first phase of the construction is the replacement of the sewer force main, along the center of the roadway. Temporary barriers will be installed from Dewey Road east to Harrington Avenue and the work will be done inside those barriers, according to the release.

There will be two eleven-foot travel lanes in each direction to limit traffic delays.
