This scenic, yet heavily-traveled road will be getting some major improvements this summer, which will finish all of the work that has been occurring for the past few years. All gas mains have been updated, south from Concord Road up north to the Silver Hill bridge, as well as water mains and gates. The southern portion of the road was reconstructed last year.
The following are the remaining projects until the northern portion of the roadway is reconstructed. Residents should anticipate construction on this road through August.
Merriam Street Sidewalk
Construction has begun on the section of sidewalk between Sunset Road and Westland Road. Work will continue though the summer of 2020.
Merriam Street Culvert at Cherry Brook
Construction of a replacement culvert on Merriam Street at Cherry Brook (between Bakers Hill Road and Cherry Brook Road). Some drainage work is needed as well to accommodate the new sidewalk. Detours will be required during some of this time, which is currently expected to be from the end of July through most of August 2020.
Merriam Street Reconstruction
Merriam Street from Sunset Road to Westland Road will be reclaimed and paved as a final piece of the work for this year on Merriam Street.
