Town of Hopkinton Authorized to Commence Work on Main Street Corridor Project

By contributor,

Meeting yet another milestone for the Main Street Corridor Project, the Town of Hopkinton is pleased to announce the contractual approval of its agreement with the MassDOT Highway Division relative to the Signal and Intersection Improvements on Route 135 in Hopkinton. The Non-Participating Agreement and Notice to Proceed was approved on June 8, 2020.

“We are pleased that the Main Street Corridor Project continues to move forward and that another milestone that will allow MassDOT to advertise the project has been reached,” said Town Manager Norman Khumalo.

This agreement between MassDOT and the town is mostly for the underground infrastructure work within the undergrounding project limits from the Fire Station to Ash Street. It also includes public outreach by the MassDOT contractor, ornamental street lighting in the undergrounding limits of the project and other ancillary project costs during construction not covered by the State Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

The signed Non-Participating Agreement and Notice to Proceed authorizes the town to commence work on June 8, 2020 and confirms that the town has, and has committed, funds to the project so construction can advance. All of the non-participating work under this agreement will be conducted by MassDOT and their contractor through coordination with the town.
