Construction on Bedford Street

Lexington’s Engineering Division began a construction project on Bedford Street near Worthen Road on Monday, June 10. Detours will be in effect but the road is not expected to be fully closed at any time.
The unlined water main on Bedford Street from Worthen Road to the Minuteman Bikeway must be replaced to assure water quality and to assure the availability of water volume and pressure to fight fires.

The road will be open to local traffic but will be narrowed to one lane with alternating traffic. Every effort will be make to detour through traffic to other streets to relieve congestion. Eastbound traffic and buses will be detoured beginning at Hill Street. Westbound traffic will stay on Bedord Street as normal.

The work area will move from Worthen Road toward the bikeway. Work hours will be from 7:30am to 4:00pm and is expected to take about three months to complete.
