Downtown Streetscape Update in Milford Daily News

At the FDP General Meeting Thursday, Anthony Tavalone of the Department of Transportation updated members about the progress and timeline of the Town of Franklin's ongoing streetscape road construction project. 

Milford Daily News reporter Mike Gleason attended the meeting and wrote a story -- Franklin: Road project may resume in April.  The following is an excerpt from that story:

Partnership members asked when two-way traffic would start in the center of town. Tavalone said the traffic pattern would probably take effect in early summer, noting that there would be an effort made to inform drivers about the changes.
"Before we start the new pattern, we'll have the contractor bring in new message boards," he said. "We can also bring in extra detail officers."
Roberta Trahan, of the partnership, said those involved in the project had been great about communicating progress on the project.
"You've all been so reasonable about keeping people informed," she said.
This is the second year of the two-year project, which has been in the planning for some time. It is hoped to revitalize the downtown area by rebuilding the roads and changing the traffic flow there.
