    Needham St./Highland Ave. road work update and a preview of what’s ahead The intersection improvements at Needham, Oak and Christina Streets is moving into the home stretch, with the project scheduled to be completed by Sept. 13. Next week, crews will be performing reconstruction and paving on Needham Street. This work is scheduled for night shift (8 p.m. to 5 a.m.)

    • Expect police details and daily sidewalk closures along Needham St. between Oak Street and the Needham town line.
    • Between Aug. 18-24 work will be performed at both day and night shifts to perform full depth reconstruction of Needham St. This work will include reclaiming the roadway to a gravel base. This work has been scheduled as a continuous operation to limit the duration of roadway impacts.

     While this project nears completion, the much larger, long anticipated redesign of Needham Street and Highland Ave. – from Route 9 in Newton to the intersection of Webster Street in Needham — is about to begin, with the first work to begin in the next several months.
    On Friday Sept. 27, the chamber will host a presentation by MassDOT to explaining the project and timeline.   Please see the listing below for more information and to registerfor this event,
