The Town of Saugus has secured funding from the state Department of Transportation (MassDOT) to carry out essential paving operations on Water Street and sections of Walnut Street. This infrastructure investment, which is scheduled to get underway on April 8, will improve the quality and safety of the roadways. The paving work will include milling and overlay work on all of Water Street and select segments of Walnut Street, specifically from Water Street to Route 1 and Central Street to Elm Street, according to a press release issued by Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree’s office. The timing and sequencing of the work is intended to ensure efficient project completion while minimizing inconvenience to residents and businesses.

Additionally, the Town will utilize its own funding sources to pave Walnut Street from Water Street to the Lynnfield Town line, work that will include milling and overlay paving. By synchronizing these two separately funded projects, the Town will both optimize the use of state funding assistance and streamline the projects’ timelines.

Throughout the duration of construction, residents and businesses are advised of potential parking restrictions within the designated work zones. To facilitate the smooth progression of the project, traffic detours will be implemented as necessary.

“We extend our thanks to residents and businesses of Saugus for their patience and cooperation during this important improvement project,” Town Manager Crabtree said.

“Thank you to the MassDOT for this much-needed project and the funding,” he said.

The anticipated completion date for the project is the end of April, depending upon weather conditions. Should members of the community have any inquiries or require further information, they are encouraged to contact the Saugus Department of Public Works at 781-231-4143.
