An informational meeting regarding the 2011 street reconstruction program and the Waltham Road waterline and roadway reconstruction project will be held from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, May 10, at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road.

The roads included in the 2011 program are:

Abbey Road between London Drive and Kingsgate Drive.

Eastcleft Drive between Kioka Avenue and Mountview Road.

Friar Lane between Abbey Road and Westbury Drive.

Johnston Road between Fairfax Drive and Hillview Drive.

Trentwood Road from Halesworth Road to Mt. Holyoke Road.

Avalon Road between Wickliffe and Kenyon roads.

The Waltham Road project includes a new waterline to be installed between Andover and North Star roads. Additionally, the section between Andover Road and Northwest Boulevard will undergo roadway reconstruction this summer. Reconstruction of the section between Northwest and North Star will be undertaken in 2012.

Work on some of these projects could begin as early as the week of May 16.

The May 10 meeting will be informal, with tables set up with plans for the different projects enabling residents to attend anytime within the two-hour period and speak directly with staff members on the projects that interest them.

Questions may be directed to the Engineering Division at 583-5360.

In an update on the Arlington Avenue road construction project, the city reported late last week that the primary work on the section between Edgemont and Waltham roads was nears completion, soon to be reopened to traffic.

The city's report said preparations were in place to begin work on the next section of this project on April 25, putting the project a week ahead of schedule.

The next phase of work pertains to the southbound lane (west side of street) between Waltham and Guilford roads, which will last through early/mid June. Detours are as follows:

Southbound traffic will be detoured right onto Guilford Road, left onto Tremont, and left onto Waltham to return to the south end of the Mallway, where motorists may turn back onto Arlington Avenue in either direction.

Northbound traffic will be maintained through the Mallway Business District.

Motorists traveling west on Guilford who wish to access the Mallway Business District will be detoured left onto Coventry Road, then right onto Waltham Road.

All motorists leaving the Mallway on Arlington Avenue will be required to travel northbound to Guilford.

Throughout this project, updates will be made regularly on the City's website, at www.uaoh.net where it is possible to sign up for email updates.

Questions may be directed to the city's engineering division at 583-5360.
