As you drive through Penacook Village, things are beginning to look a bit different as construction continues through the corridor. The majority of the overhead utility wires between Washington Street and the bridge over the Contoocook River have come down and the utility poles are scheduled to be removed next week. Poulin Park has been grubbed out in preparation for the new roundabout at the Washington Street intersection. The Summer Street and Merrimack Street configuration at Boudreau Square has been modified where the one-way, short leg, of Summer Street between Village Street and High Street is now permanently closed. The one-way configuration of Merrimack Street at Boudreau Square is now operating as a two-way roadway. Access to Sam’s Store and Summer Street is now directly from Merrimack Street. Barrels and cones have been placed to show the new configuration in this area. The electrical contractor continues to place underground conduit for the street lights in the area of Boudreau Square and Poulin Park, and will continue to do so into next week. Temporary sidewalk and parking impacts in the vicinity of Boudreau Square is expected. During the week of June 2nd, Merrill Construction will begin to lower manhole covers and catch basin frames as well as remove curbing and sidewalks from the Boscawen Town Line to Washington Street in preparation for roadway reclamation and paving operations scheduled for the week of June 9th. Temporary sidewalk and parking impacts are expected. While Penacook Village businesses remain open, traffic delays during the reclamation/paving operations are expected so commuters are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
