Project Status Update - Trask Street Area Public Improvements Project


Granese has completed all of the water works required of this project.

Granese expects to be off-site for the next four (4) weeks or so, while the sub-contractor for National GRID-gas, NUECO, works to replace gas mains in the Neighborhood.

NUECO expects that they will need approximately four (4) weeks, weather permitting, to complete their work.

Granese may return before mid-February to address the need to repair the sanitary sewer main in Shepard St. near Pleasant St.



Once NUECO has completed the NGRID-gas work, Granese will return to continue their work on this project including sanitary sewer work, storm drainage work, sidewalk work, and paving, etc.

This general schedule may be impacted by utility pole and overhead wiring work that National GRID-electric and the other utilities need to complete to allow for curbing, sidewalks and handicap access ramps to be properly located and constructed.

We currently expect that Granese will return to continue work on the Trask Street Improvements Project, depending on weather, around mid-February more or less, subject to any movement on the plan to repair the sanitary sewer in Shepard St.


Currently, we still expect that in the Spring of 2020, Granese will beginning the curbing, sidewalk, and related roadway work.  Paving will likely be done in late Summer/ early Fall 2020.   In addition, although Granese, by contract, has until late June 2021 to complete the project, we expect that construction associated with the Trask Street Area Improvements Project will likely be completed before Thanksgiving 2020.  


The City of Gloucester Department of Public Works (DPW – Engineering & Utilities Divisions) will also be monitoring the work and managing the City’s Contracts.  You should feel free to call Paul Keane, City Engineer, or Ryan Marques, Assistant City Engineer, at 978-325-5600 if you have any questions or concerns about the project. After hours, please call the Gloucester Police Department at 978-283-1212 and ask that the DPW On-Call Person to be paged to address your immediate problem.  As each specific work task is about to begin, the Contractor will hand out Notices for the specific area to be impacted. 


This project is expected to be closed-out by no later than June 30, 2021.  Project Closeout generally includes finalizing grant paperwork, acceptance of as-built plans, release of all bonds and retainage, etc.
