Drivers on Morton Street should expect delays, starting Sunday night, due to resurfacing work on the roadway.
Crews with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation will be working overnight for the next four weeks on the 2.1-mile stretch of the road from Gallivan Boulevard in Mattapan to Shea Circle in Jamaica Plain. The portion of the roadway from Norfolk Street to Evans Street, however, will not be resurfaced during this project, but will be repaired during the Morton Street Bridge replacement project.
Parking bans are also expected as part of the work, but the DOT said crews will avoid residential areas during the weeknights and stage the work to ease the impact to residents.
The tentative schedule is as follows:
For milling: starting Sunday night July 14, through Friday July 19, crews will mill Morton Street between West Main Street and Shea Circle/Forest Hills Rotary between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night. One travel lane in each direction will remain open at all times.
On Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20, crews will mill Morton Street between Gallivan Boulevard and West Main Street. Work is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and continue to 7 a.m. the following morning.
Castings will be raised beginning Monday, July 22, to Friday, July 26, between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. One travel lane in each direction will remain open during this period.
For paving: starting Sunday, July 28, through Friday, Aug. 2, crews will pave Morton Street between West Main Street and Shea Circle/Forest Hills Rotary between the hours of 7 p.m. and 5 a.m.
On Friday, Aug. 2, and Saturday, Aug. 3, crews will pave between Gallivan Boulevard and West Main Street between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m.
Work is weather permitting and the schedule is subject to change, according to the DOT.
