Broad Street Parkway update set for Thursday in Nashua
Ward 4 residents wanting to learn more about the timeline of the work, changes to Fairmount Street and other traffic disruptions are encouraged to attend Thursday’s meeting beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Amherst Street Elementary School, 71 Amherst St.
Brown said there have also been some concerns raised about traffic on Fairmount Street, as the heavy police presence that initially existed during the start of construction has since dwindled.
Thursday’s meeting will be the second of its kind in the Ward 4 neighborhood. Last October, residents gathered to discuss detours, drainage, asbestos and more. At the time, Mayor Donnalee Lozeau acknowledged that the initial phase of construction was going to be disruptive.
However, by educating citizens about the timeline and process of the first construction phase for the nearly two-mile road, Lozeau said previously that she is hopeful it will help the project run smoother.
R.S. Audley Inc. was hired to perform about $11 million in work on the first phase of the parkway. Under contract, the firm has until Nov. 1, 2014, to finish the Baldwin Street bridge portion.
The estimated cost to complete the roadway is about $68 million, with $37.5 million being paid by the city and the rest through federal funds.
