Installation of utilities during the Robert Crown construction project next week will affect traffic on Main Street, Dodge Avenue, and Lee Street that will involve cutting, excavating, and patching the roadway.

In the regular weekly construction update released Friday, the project’s construction manager said that traffic control measures such as the use of advanced signing, barricades, and flaggers will be used to ease the pain of travelers in the area.

Last week, workers completed caisson drilling, continued foundation system installation, and completed stone base and curb installation in the west end of the parking lot.

Next week they will continue installing the foundation system and work on connecting site utilities.

Next Saturday, Nov. 10, they are anticipating utility work that will reduce Main Street to one lane in one direction, with flaggers in place to control both eastbound and westbound Main Street traffic flow.

It’s all part of the continuing work to build a new ice rink, community center, and library branch at Robert Crown.
