The roadwork, already underway, was announced by Mayor Joseph Sullivan in a statement Thursday afternoon.
"I am grateful to MassDOT and to State Representative Mark Cusack for their work in ensuring that this needed work is being carried out," Sullivan said. “This artery gets a great deal of wear and tear due to its proximity to the South Shore Plaza, the other office and retail venues and the Granite Park neighborhood. It is truly a gateway for Braintree.”
Sullivan noted that the busiest time of year for Granite Street is approaching.
“While always an extremely busy roadway, Granite Street sees an increase in traffic flow during the holiday shopping season which seems to be upon us earlier each year," he said.
The mayor asked for residents' understanding during the project, saying, “While the bulk of the work is occurring in the night time hours it is important to remember that there may be interruptions to normal traffic flow.
“We anticipate that this project will be completed quickly and that the result will be worth any disruptions the construction work may cause."
