The Town of Natick has given a heads up that paving is set to occur from Sept. 5-7 on South Main Street (also known as, in recent years, as “the land of double utility poles”) and that detours will be in place to assist those on the roads. This paving operation will go from 7am-3:30pm, and will be for the street’s final surface.
The town isn’t pussyfooting around this construction: “The work leading up to and during the paving will be noisy and disruptive.”
All northbound through traffic will be detoured at Coolidge Street to the south and all southbound through traffic will be detoured at Cottage Street (see map below). Those who live on South Main Street and its side streets will be permitted to use South Main during the paving.
The contractor will be starting at the Sherborn Town Line and moving northerly. The schedule is subject to changes due to rain.
South Main Street has been under reconstruction for several years.
