On Monday, April 23, 2018 National Grid Gas will be completing the final restoration of the concrete roadway on Bellevue Ave at Prospect Hill Street, from a prior repair, completing the last two concrete panels at this location.

The work includes the full excavation of concrete panels and pouring of new concrete in the northbound lane. Bellevue Ave northbound will be closed between Memorial Blvd and Prospect Hill Street and traffic will be detoured at Memorial Blvd to Americas Cup Ave. The detour will be in place until approximately 3pm on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 while the concrete cures and is acceptable for traffic to drive over it. Work will begin at approximately 7 am on Monday, 04/23/18. Police officers will be onsite to facilitate with the flow of traffic.
