WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Police Department shared the following road closure advisory yesterday:
“The Butters Row Bridge will be closed from August 3 – 14 to accommodate construction crews replacing a 30-inch culvert. Local traffic will be allowed from Chestnut Street up to Factory Road. There will be no access to Butters Row from Main Street. Seek alternate routes.”
The Wilmington Department of Public Works provided additional details about the project on their website:
“The Department of Public Works has contracted the services of Cardillo & Sons, Inc. of Wakefield, MA to replace the existing 30-inch concrete and corrugated metal culvert underneath Butters Row, between Factory Road and the Butters Row Bridge. The existing culvert is approximately 15-feet below grade. This project, which received an Order of Conditions from the Conservation Commission, seeks to improve drainage backups along the north side of Butters Row, and help alleviate ponding along the railroad bed under the bridge. Butters Row is planned to be closed for an estimated 10 to 14 days starting Monday August 3rd, 2015. The closure will occur at Chestnut Street and Main Street, allowing only local traffic to access the area, with a hard closure at the bridge area. It is expected that the project will be completed by mid-August.”
