Paving work on Francis and Hubbard avenues

As part of the city’s Street Improvement Project, there will be paving work on Francis and Hubbard avenues on Friday, Aug. 5.

On Francis Avenue, paving will begin at 7 a.m. until noon from the West Street intersection (Eversource driveway) to College Drive/Government Drive. Traffic will be detoured; access will only be provided for those that live on the street.

For Hubbard Avenue, work will take place noon to 4 p.m. from East Street to the railroad bridge (south of Downing Parkway). There will be one lane of traffic open for southbound traffic only (northbound will be detoured to Merrill Road).

The city apologizes for the inconvenience and kindly asks for patience as it is necessary to improve the infrastructure.
