Construction is underway and the contractor is focusing on filling slopes
either side of Portsmouth Street in advance of Unitil coming in to set their
new poles and installation of drainage. The right-hand slip
lanes on Portsmouth Street are not open to traffic. Traffic is restricted to a
three-lane section. Next week, the gas company will begin installing a new main on
East Side Drive and Mountain Road, from Mill Street to a few hundred feet north on
Mountain Road. Work will occur between the hours of 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Traffic
will be restricted to alternating one-way traffic and delays are expected.
