July 2017 – Powder Mill Road Culvert construction

Progress continues on the removal and replacement of the Powder Mill Road culvert. Powder Mill Road will be closed from July 10 to August 31, 2017.

From the Town of Concord:

CONCORD, MA — Contractor D.W. White Construction has confirmed that the existing Powder Mill Road culvert will be removed this summer, and replaced with a new culvert that is better (higher and wider) for bicyclists using the trail. Work in the area of the Powder Mill Road culvert will begin on July 3rd with the road closing to through-traffic on July 10th. Work is expected to be completed in late August, with the road re-opening before the start of the Concord Public School’s new school year. The Contractor has submitted a detour plan to MassDOT engineers and signs are being installed in advance of the road closure. MassDOT District 4 Engineers will be providing construction oversight of this project and is coordinating with Town agencies as needed.
