Paving Projects 

This page lists the paving projects on arterial roadways anticipated to take place in calendar year 2020. Road users should expect the roadway surface to be grooved or uneven until paving is completed. Travelers should expect lane closures and delays for the duration of the work. Where sidewalk and curb ramp work is proposed, pedestrian detours should be expected.

Marginal Way – MPI Paving Project
Forest Avenue to Franklin Street

The project consists of milling the top layer of pavement, new curb installation at intersections, ADA upgrades at ramps, miscellaneous sidewalk and esplanade work, signal upgrades at Elm Street, resurfacing the road, and re-striping the road. This project went out to bid in July 2020 and will be awarded soon. We are anticipating all work to take place in 2021. 

Brighton Avenue
Taft Avenue to Westbrook Line

The scope of this repaving and pedestrian improvements project includes a milling (removing) the existing pavement surface and installing a new asphalt pavement overlay along Brighton Avenue from the City of Westbrook line to Taft Avenue. Curb ramps and sidewalk segments within the project limits will be reconstructed to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The existing center medians will be removed and the roadway will be restriped to provide bike lanes. The configuration and number of travel lanes and turn lanes will not be changed.  In coordination with METRO, two bus stop pads for bus shelters will be constructed near City Hospital Drive. Pedestrian signal improvements are also proposed at City Hospital Drive and Riverside Drive intersections. We anticipate this work to start in August 2020 and be completed by the end of the year.
