North Carpenter Road rehabilitation
About the project
The $11.4 million project will reconstruct and widen North Carpenter Road in Brunswick, add turn lanes at Grafton Road, and replace sidewalks. The project will also include upgrades to the storm sewer system, sidewalks and curb, signals, and signage.
The long awaited rehabilitation of North Carpenter Road is underway. The 2.07 mile project, which spans from Concord Drive to Boston Road, as well as 0.22 miles of Grafton Road in the City of Brunswick and Brunswick Hills, is anticipated to begin work in March 2019. This project will include the complete replacement and widening of the existing pavement, addition of turn lanes at the North Carpenter Rd./Grafton Rd. intersection, construction of a new storm sewer system, sidewalk replacement with additional curb, and traffic control updates.
Work is expected to continue through summer 2020.
North Carpenter Road, between Grafton Road and Boston Road, is closed for approximately 120 days in order to complete pavement widening, storm sewer work, and other miscellaneous work on the project.
During the closure, only northbound traffic will be maintained for local traffic only. All southbound traffic and non-local northbound traffic, between Grafton Road and Boston Road, will be required to use the detour. The detours are as follows:
- Southbound traffic will be detoured east on Boston Road to West 130th Street, south on West 130th Street to Grafton Road, and west on Grafton Road back to North Carpenter Road.
- Northbound, non-local traffic will be detoured east on Grafton Road to West 130th Street, north on West 130th Street to Boston Road, and west on Boston Road back to North Carpenter Road.
North Carpenter Road, between Concord Drive and Grafton Road, will continue to have intermittent single lane closures in order to complete miscellaneous work items. Bi-directional traffic will be maintained by flaggers within this section during this time.
The entire project is expected to be complete September 2020.
