The westbound side of Arsenal Street will be closed on Friday, Sept. 30 while crews work on the road, and eastbound traffic will be detoured.
The road will be milling the pavement (removing the top part of the roadway) on the westbound side from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., the contractor informed the Watertown Department of Public Works.
“In order to expedite this work a temporary detour will be set up for the Arsenal Street eastbound traffic utilizing Irving Street, North Beacon Street and Louise Street,” the contractor wrote. “Westbound traffic along Arsenal Street will remain on Arsenal Street and rerouted around the work zone.”
Several police officers will be in the area to assist drivers and pedestrians navigate the area. Buses will be allowed to travel along Arsenal Street and current bus stops will be maintained.
Businesses will remain open along that stretch of the street.
(Note: The work was postponed a day because of equipment problems.)
