The City of New Bedford has roadwork sites for the upcoming week of March 8, 2021 – March 12, 2021 and they are as follows:


Eversource will be working on the gas main relays at:
• Pleasant St. working from Bedford St. to Madison St.
• Oaklawn St. working from 37 Oaklawn St. towards 350 West Rodney French Blvd.
• Chestnut St. working from Willis St. to Pope St.
• Phillips Ave. working at 217 Phillips Ave to the intersection of Ashley Blvd. Then work east on Phillips Ave. towards N. Front St.

• The contractor (SCR Construction) will continue site work at the future South Coast Rail station platform locations in the City. Work will commence at each of the platform sites: Church St. at Carlisle St. and the existing rail yard located between Wamsutta St., Herman Melville Blvd. and Whales Tooth parking lot.
• The contractor (Bell Traffic) will be working on the traffic signals located at the intersection of Acushnet Ave. X Ashley Blvd. Police details and traffic controls will be in place for any temporary lane shifts.
• Department of Public Infrastructure will be filling potholes city-wide on a continuous basis.
• The contractor (Baystate WinSupply) is scheduled to continue large water meter replacements at various locations throughout the city. There are no anticipated traffic controls for this work.
• Due to ongoing construction at the High Hill Reservoir residents may experience discolored water. The water is safe, and the discoloration will be temporary. We recommend allowing the water to settle for a few hours and then flushing your service line by letting the bathtub run for a few minutes until the water clears.

** Please note: Contractors will continue to follow guidelines and protocol regarding COVID-19 social distancing while conducting work in construction zone.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation the Department of Public Infrastructure will be closed to the public entry. Office staff is available to assist by email and telephone.
