contribute's picture

Hopkinton’s Main Street Corridor Improvement Project
has now entered the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) bid
process.

“We are proud of the efforts by the Town’s project team that have brought the project to its
next phase where it will be managed by MassDOT from bidding through construction,” said
Town Manager Norman Khumalo. “On the town side, we will continue to advocate for the
will of the Town Meeting that approved the project.”

The bid process began with the advertisement of the project by MassDOT on June 27,
2020. From there, VHB, the Town’s Design Consultant, will be working closely over the
next month or so with the Town and MassDOT to coordinate all of the next steps in the bid
process. A tentative date for the bid opening, where proposals submitted to MassDOT by
contractors will be reviewed, is currently scheduled for August 11, 2020.

Once the bid process is complete, MassDOT will award the project so construction can be
scheduled and a construction start date will be announced. A press release will be sent
out by the Town to announce the selected contractor and the proposed start date.
At this time construction is anticipated to begin in the Spring of 2021.
