Roundabout Construction Update

The project to build a roundabout at the intersection of Forbes Boulevard and Foxborough Boulevard (in front of the former Foxfield Plaza) has been unexpectedly held up. While preparing the roadway for the new design, it was discovered that a section of an existing gas main was located too close to the surface of the roadway and needs to be replaced.  This new section of gas main must be installed outside of the roadway to meet all current design and safety regulations. The contractor is working closely with Columbia Gas to address this situation and the two entities are working together to plan, design and install the new line as soon as possible.   Once this work is completed, the contractor will then move forward to address the remaining sections of the project. The Town has been assured by Columbia Gas that the gas line will be completed within the next one to two weeks. 

Please stay tuned for additional updates as they become available.
