Churchills Lane & Bradlee Road Drainage and Roadway Reconstruction Project
The installation of drainage on Bradlee Road and Churchills Lane was completed in the Summer of 2017. Beginning this Spring these roads will receive a final paving course.
Adams Street Drainage Reconstruction
Construction will begin early in Spring 2018 to replace the existing clay pipe storm drain on Adams Street between Granite Avenue and the Quincy line with new plastic (HDPE) pipe as well the replacement of existing manholes and catch basins. This project should be completed by the end of Summer 2018.
Reconstruction of Granite Avenue at Squantum Street intersection - MassDOT
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is currently scheduled to begin reconstruction of the Granite Avenue at Squantum Street intersection in the Spring of 2018. The project will include the installation of new traffic signal equipment and dedicated left turn lanes on Granite Avenue, as well as geometrical changes to improve pedestrian and bicycle accomodations through the intersection. The project is expected to be completed during the 2018 construction season.
Water Main Replacement Project
Water mains will be renewed or replaced on the following roads:
- Antwerp Street
- Berlin Avenue
- Brackett Street
- Bunton Street
- Cedar Terrace
- Eaton Street
- Howard Street
- Johnson Street
- Squantum Street - Granite Avenue to Denmark Avenue
Work includes replacing water mains and water services from the main to the property line at all residences. Work is expected to begin this spring and extend through the fall of 2018
Wendell Park Tree Filter Boxes
The Town of Milton recently received a Section 319 Grant from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection to install catch basins and tree filter boxes along Wendell Park to clean surface runoff before it is discharged to Pine Tree Brook. This project is expected to begin in April 2018 and be completed before July 2018.
Sewer Forcemain Replacements - Randolph Ave (RT 28) and Granite Avenue
The Milton DPW will be replacing underground sewer forcemain pipes in three separate locations: Randolph Avenue near Eager Road, Randolph Avenue near Highland Street, and Granite Avenue near Hope Avenue. The work is being performed to replace aging utility infrastructure and increase efficiency at three of the town's sewer pump stations. Work at all three locations will primarily be in the southbound travel lanes, and will occur between the hours of 7:00 AM and 2:30 PM. Some limited night work may also occur at each location where the forcemains cross the roadways. Work is expected to begin in September 2018 and be completed by November 2018.
This year, the Engineering Department will be overseeing design and constrcution of "Year 13" Town's capital improvements plan for sewer inflow and infiltration (I/I) reduction. Sewer pipes and manholes in the following locations will be cleaned, inspected and lined and sealed as necessary to prevent groundwater infiltration into the sewer system. It is crucial to eliminate clean groundwater from flowing into the sewer system, as it increases the volume of waste water being conveyed to the MWRA for treatment, thus driving up costs to the Town.
