Main St Bridge Update 4/4/14 - NOTE SATURDAY CONSTRUCTION!

The first full week of construction is coming to an end, and here is today's update from Main Street Initiative President John Moriarty:
According to Paul’s [Moynihan] morning update, the general work for today is:
n  Demolition of sidewalks within construction zone is primary work item
But, please take note of this poignant item:
Contractor (R. M. Piper) crew will work Saturday (4/5) from 7:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. inside barriers of work zone
It appears there shouldn’t be any impact on Saturday traffic flow or pattern.  If anything think of this as an opportunity for more customers.  Construction workers will occupy parking spaces normally available on Saturday however.

Main Street Bridge Update 4/1/2014

You can get a close up view from the pedestrian walkway between Main St. and Beacon St. East, or a bird's eye view from the second floor of the parking garage.
From Main Street Initiative President John Moriarty:
We are well into day two of the Beacon Street East detour and traffic appears to be moving fairly well.  The small exception has been when traffic slows down because of genuine interest in seeing the progress being made.  If you find yourself falling into the category of person who finds big construction projects fascinating, please take a look at our Facebook page to see Melissa’s pictures and updates.
There will be a presentation tomorrow morning at City Hall by the project team, at 8:00 a.m. in room 200 A.
As always, please forward questions to Paul, or drop me a line and I will see that they get to him.  As I am writing this, I am collating a short list to send to him.  I will post them and the answers as they are confirmed.
Enjoy Spring, and Paul’s update below.
Hi All – Update this a.m. (Tuesday 4/1),
n  Phase 1 Detour in effect
