On Saturday morning, September 28, 2019, the City’s contractor, Shaw Brothers Construction, will be reducing Forest Avenue to one lane in the inbound and outbound direction from 7am to 7pm.  The lane closures are required to install pavement within the Forest Avenue-Bedford Street-Baxter Blvd. intersection.  The contractor will also be paving Baxter Blvd. from Preble Street Extension to Forest Avenue during this period.  This work is being completed as part of the Bedford Street Sewer separation project.  

IMPORTANT INFO FOR MOTORISTS:  The left turn movement from outbound Forest Ave onto Bedford Street will be shut down during the paving work.  Motorists will be directed to use Falmouth Street as a detour during this work sequence.  Access to all USM facilities and businesses on Bedford Street will remain open and accessible via Durham Street.  Baxter Blvd. traffic between Preble Street Extension and Forest Avenue will be closed periodically during this time period.  Motorists will be directed to use Preble Street Extension as an alternate route during these times.   

SEEK ALTERNATE ROUTE, IF POSSIBLE, TO AVOID DELAYS
Motorists are urged, if possible, to seek alternate routes into and around this area during this time period.
