Franklin St./Melrose Highlands Improvement Project
The final design of the Franklin St./Melrose Highlands Improvement Project have been completed. Drawings have gone out for bid June 11th, 2014. The public open house for the project was May 29th. You can see a copy of the plan of the project here.
The Committee was part of the design process, attending 3 design meeting between December and May. Because of the lane width requirements and parking, a dedicated bike lane could not be added to this road. However, ‘sharrows‘ will be painted onto the roadway reminding motorists to share the road.
2014 will see mostly utility work. Repaving and restriping the pavement is expected in the spring of 2015.
