City Road Construction

Crescent Connector Phase 2 Project

The second phase of the Crescent Connector Project will consist of constructing a new roadway connecting Park Street to Maple Street and a full-depth reconstruction of Railroad Street. Work will begin on May 15, 2023, with the preparation of the site with construction limit fencing and signage. Construction will begin in earnest on May 22, 2023, on Park Street. This project will impact Park Street, Main Street, and Maple Street at various times throughout the course of the construction. Moveable message boards will warn of street and lane closures. It will also include the installation of new traffic signals at Park Street and Maple Street. The project will include bike lanes and new sidewalks, and the entire route will have new street lights installed. Phase 1 of this project, which focused on railroad crossing improvements within the City core in 2022, is now complete. Both phases of this project have been in development for the past 12 years, and the construction of Phase 2 will complete this long-term project. The estimated completion date of this project is November 2024.

Corrective Action Plan Amendment Crescent Connector Roadway


June 18, 2024 Daily Update

Curbing installation will move to Park Street on Wednesday. The northern driveway at the Park Place Tavern and Green Mountain Clippers (38 Park Street) and the southern driveway of the 34 Park Street building will be blocked from 7:00 am tomorrow for approximately 36 hours while the concrete that the granite curb is bedded in sets.

Access to the businesses located at 34 Park Street will be available from the curb cut in the new roadway to the north of the building. Access to 38 Park Street will be from the southern driveway.  The contractor plans to leave the future turning lane in front of 34 Park Street open for accessible parking. 

Driveways that were closed today on Maple Street will be re-opened tomorrow.

Work will continue on Maple Street so expect delays on both Park and Maple Street tomorrow.

The contractor provides their best prediction of their next work cycle. Please keep in mind that construction is a fluid process and sometimes plans must change based upon weather, conditions found in the field, or other factors.
