Crosswalk Replacement Will Close Main Street for 24 Hours
Please be advised that weather permitting, Main Street will be closed at Haven Street in both directions beginning from 10:00 PM on Friday, Oct. 14 until 10:00 PM on Saturday, October 15. Access to all downtown residences and businesses will still be possible during this time. This is to allow the Town of Reading, through its contractor RAE Contracting, to replace one of the brick crosswalks on Main Street at the corner of Haven Street. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Access to the businesses and residences north of and including Haven St. will be possible via Woburn St., while access to the businesses and residences south of Haven St. will be possible via Washington St.
On Monday, October 17 from 4:00 AM to approximately 10:00 AM, Main St. at Haven St. will be reduced to one lane. Traffic will be alternated one lane at a time, in order to allow the contractor to complete the remaining work on the crosswalk. We anticipate that this will impact commuter traffic.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Town of Reading Engineering Division at 781-942-9082. We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this time.
