Fellsway East/Highland Ave. Intersection Improvements to Commence

Friday, May 31, 2019

Over the next three weeks, the Fellsway East/Highland Avenue Intersection will be undergoing roadwork improvements. Tufts Construction Inc. of Medford will be performing water main replacement work under the direction of the Malden Engineering Department. The work is scheduled to begin the week of June 3rd with a targeted completion date of June 30th.  During construction, excavation areas will be patched. All disturbances to tree belts and private property will be restored to pre-existing condition to the fullest extent possible.

Throughout the project, the City will make every effort to notify residents of any scheduled temporary water shut-offs. If an emergency water shutoff occurs, the contractor will repair the problem as quickly as possible.     

Following the water main work, the Department of Conservation and Recreation will begin traffic signal installation starting as early as July.  The work will include removal of traffic islands, road reconstruction, sidewalk construction, road paving, and traffic signal installation. It is anticipated that the signal installation project should be substantially complete and functional by this fall. 

To report any problems or concerns, please contact the Engineering Department at ylip@cityofmalden.org or 781-397-7000 Ext. 2042.
