Route 9 commuters better watch out. The state’s highway department is set to start this spring repaving the already busy highway on both eastbound and westbound sides from the Newton border to High St. in Brookline.
The $5.2 million project will include resurfacing, guard rail replacement, reconstruction of the median, and drainage improvements, said Erik Abell, a MassHighway spokesman. Construction crews will work only at night, from Sunday through Thursday, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., he said.
Contractor Aggregate Industries will restrict construction during Red Sox games, to ease traffic before and after, Abell said. The project is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2008.
