project to carry Route 52 over a stream and wetlands on Longwood Gardens
property.

This spring, the intersection of Route
52 and Route 926 (Street Road) will be closed and detoured for six weeks.
Traffic will be detoured over Route 52, Route 1, and Creek Road. Local
access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

There will be no traffic restrictions
during special events at Longwood Gardens. The contractor will coordinate
dates with Longwood Gardens.

Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester,
Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $15,422,710 contract that
is financed 100 percent federal funds.
