Rt 14 Project Update: Alternate Routes

Alternate Routes

From Police Chief Rick Wall:

Attention Pembroke Residents,

I would like to update you on the Route 14 project.  The good news is that COMPLETION is near.  The bad news is that we have to bear some more inconveniences in order to SAFELY complete this 3 year project.  The timeline to mill and pave the Center and Barker Street section of Route 14 consists of a week’s worth of work that will dramatically effect traffic beginning MONDAY.  In the following few weeks the road will be open with smaller details needed to raise the structures.  Weather permitting, the first week of October is scheduled for the finish paving and markings. 

We ask, if at all possible, that you plan in advance alternate travel routes between the hours of 7am and 4pm to avoid the construction totally, or if travel on Route 14 is unavoidable we ask for your patience and understanding. 

There will be a REVERSE 911 MESSAGE:

“On Monday September 10th, 2018 at 7am PA Landers, MASSDot and the Pembroke DPW will begin the final phase of the Route 14 project.  From Monday the 10th through Friday the 14th vehicle travel on Center Street from Oldham Street and including the entire length of Barker Street will be reduced to one lane of travel to allow the contractors to safely mill and grind the road surface and put down the base coat of pavement.  Vehicle travel from Route 53 to Pembroke Center will be allowed BUT vehicle traffic going east on Route 14 towards Route 53 will be detoured onto Curve Street to Oldham Street to West Elm Street to Elm Street in Hanover and to Route 53 at the Broadway traffic lights.  Vehicles approaching the center from points south and west are encourage to use the Alternative Route of Mountain Ave to High Street to Old Washington Street and reach Route 53 at Disch’s Tavern.    Residents who live along the construction route are asked to please plan to travel before 7am and after 4pm or drive only in the direction prescribed above. 

There will be detour signs and police officers posted at critical intersections.  

SCHOOL BUSSES AND EMERGENCY VEHICLE ROUTES WILL NOT BE EFFECTED

Thank-you and be safe.    Chief Rick Wall”
