Ridgecrest Drive Road and Sidewalk Improvements


While work continues along Little River Road and Shaker Road, the entrance to Ridgecrest Drive will be improved as part of the Little River Road Reconstruction Project.  Some of the improvements include:

  • The limits of improvements extend from Little River Road up to the driveway to house #12
  • Addition of a cement concrete sidewalk on the south/east side of Ridgecrest Drive
  • Replacement of the storm drainage (already complete)
  • Reconstruction of the roadway with minor changes to the horizontal and vertical geometry of the road
  • Installation of granite curbing
  • Installation of a stone masonry retaining wall to support the new sidewalk
  • Installation of new signage and metal guardrail
  • Installation of new trees, shrubs, and perennials to replace existing near the intersection with Little River Road

The project is being administered by MassDOT and constructed by Ludlow Construction.  The construction of the retaining wall is expected to begin at the end of July /early August with the remainder of the work to occur in the fall.  The road reconstruction and sidewalk improvements will be coordinated with work on Little River Road and is tentatively scheduled for September 2017.  Landscaping improvements would occur after the road work and is anticipated later in the fall.
