Parking Spaces in Front of Theater and Post Office Expected to Reopen – Brick work completed in front of USPS

The pace of the Madison Center Project continues to benefit from excellent weather conditions and an efficient construction crew. Brick paver installation nears completion in the north east corner of downtown. It is expected that approximately 10 parking spaces in front of the US Post Office and theater building will reopen Friday afternoon and complete access to the Post Office and sidewalk from the Route 1 crosswalk was reopened on Thursday. The parking spaces had been closed and crosswalk difficult to use as construction concentrated on that end of town and the space was used to stage supplies and equipment. Visitors to Madison center can now get a glimpse of what the completed project will look like, as the majority of the work has been completed near the Post Office. “The work done in front of the Post Office was extensive and required a lot of cuts [to the brick pavers] as there were many angles to deal with. The memorial bricks have been replaced and most of the brick pavers and granite are in place,” said Ryan Duques of EDC, adding “it looks really impressive and is a great representation of what the remainder of town will soon look like.” Visitors to the Post Office, Madison Arts Cinemas, Coffee Shop and nearby stores will now be able to find parking in front of those businesses on Main Street. Construction will continue to move west on the north side of downtown and a new no-parking area will be designated to facilitate the construction staging area, which will generally the 2000 Building, 747 Boston Post road and Café Allegre. Visitors are reminded that there is parking behind both of those buildings, which is expected to remain open. Important Pedestrian Reminder Visitors to town are reminded to adhere to all safety walkways. Because tree grates, light poles, etc. have not yet been installed, there are openings in the walkways. Pedestrian walkways have been established to keep visitors safe, so please do not walk under safety tape or around blocked off areas. Newcomers Club Halloween “Monster March” Parade Saturday The annual Madison Newcomers Monster March will be held this Saturday, October 24 at 11am. The event kicks off at RJ Julia’s and ends at the Deacon John Grave House. The event will take place on the south side of town.
