Public works reviews Shrewsbury construction projects

Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen held its annual public works workshop Sept. 20 to discuss progress on several projects in town, including renovation and expansion plans for the town library and the status of a new middle school building.

Several officials were in attendance from departments such as Parks and Recreation, Water and Sewer, Highway, and Public Buildings. A number voiced frustration with Verizon’s unfinished work on Grafton Street.

The project on Route 140, or Grafton Street, involved resurfacing and installing new traffic lights and is now complete. However, Town Engineer Jack Perreault noted Verizon has not yet removed wiring and several poles in the area.

“We’d like to get the poles removed before winter for the plows,” Perreault told the board, who voted to send Verizon a letter requesting prompt action on removal so the project could be completed.

The board was also briefed by town official s o n th e construction progress of the new Sherwood Middle School. Earlier this year, the Sherwood Building Committee chose Gilbane Building Company to serve as its construction manager of the new school project. The school is slated for completion in 2013, but may be finished ahead of schedule, as early as 2012.
