Advisory: Roadway construction in Greenwood Avenue area

Pawtucket Hot Mix Asphalt (PHMA) will be commencing roadway construction on Greenwood Avenue from Beaumont Street to Newman Avenue and Ellis Street on April 14, 2021. The work includes milling the surface course of asphalt, adjusting utility structures as needed and installing a new layer of asphalt pavement. In order to create a proper transition from the driveway to the new road, the contractor may be removing driveway aprons and replacing with new asphalt driveway aprons.

During construction the roads may be closed, except for local traffic. Vehicular access to residents’ properties may be limited or restricted for brief periods of time during construction. The hours of construction will typically be from 7 AM until 5 PM Monday through Friday, although longer hours and weekend work may be required to complete the project in a timely manner. Temporary “NO PARKING” signs will be posted along these roads and will be enforced during the hours of construction. Parking will be permitted outside of construction hours.

The City and the contractor will make every effort to minimize any inconvenience to the residents throughout this process, however the noise and dust associated with the reconstruction of these roads cannot be avoided.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this project please contact the City’s Engineering Division at 401-435-7703.
