Sudbury Public Works Construction Update

Sudbury Public Works Monthly Construction Update: NOVEMBER 2022




GOODMAN’S HILL ROAD – Drainage Improvements

Phase I of the project will be wrapping up this week. Phase I has included work between Old Lancaster Road and Concord Road. Phase II of the project should begin next week (on or after 11/7) and continue through to Thanksgiving. Phase II will be between Old Lancaster Road and Route 20. Message boards will be adjusted for Phase II work and detour signs will be posted. Once again, buses and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the construction zone. All others will be discouraged.   


CONCORD ROAD – Drainage Manhole Repair

This should be a one-day job early next week (on or after 11/7) to rebuild a drainage manhole just north of Goodman’s Hill Road. Detail officers will assist with alternating traffic. All will be able to pass through the work zone with expected minor delays.      


PEAKHAM ROAD – Drainage Improvements

Following Goodman’s Hill Road Phase II we expect to move to Peakham Road.  Peakham Road improvements will be in two locations: 

  • Location 1:  Between Meadowbrook Circle and Pratts Mill Road. 
  • Location 2:  Between Pratts Mill Road and Old Lancaster Road. 

At this time, we have not decided which location will be first. Sections of Peakham Road will be closed with message boards and detours set up.    




WAYSIDE INN ROAD – Postponed until Spring 2023.  

BOWDITCH ROAD – Postponed until Spring 2023. 

PLEASE NOTE: The micro surfacing application was not curing in a reasonable time in other communities due to colder weather and dampness. As a result, the contractor shut all applications down until the spring.    


About Micro Surfacing: A Micro Surface is a thin layer (3/8-inch) preventative maintenance treatment applied to an existing paved (and crack sealed) surface. Consists of a carefully proportioned blend of polymer-modified asphalt emulsion, crushed aggregate, water, and mineral filler. The preservation treatment extends the life of the asphalt by providing skid resistance, restricting moisture intrusion, UV damage and surface raveling, and overall appearance.
What to expect: Loud noise and possible night work and 2-lane closure. Micro Surfacing takes place in several phases and will require several days to complete for each road section.
