The Watertown Department of Public Works announced that the construction project on Common Street will soon begin, and the street will be closed much of the day.
The project includes creating a roundabout at the intersection of Common Street, Orchard Street and Church Street. Also, the intersection with Spring Street will be redesigned.
The DPW sent out the following announcement:
Beginning Monday, July 23, Common Street will be closed between Mt. Auburn Street and Orchard Street between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., with local access provided to abutters and Middlesex Road residents only. The closure will also include the intersection of Spring Street — there will be no access to Common Street from Spring Street. Police details and closure signage will be placed to prevent access to the construction area. This full road closure is being put into effect to expedite Common Street road reconstruction in front of the High School.
