Note: Updates are based on a two-week “look-ahead” provided by the project contractor, I.W. Harding Construction Co. Inc., of West Bridgewater, MA. The schedule is subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances, including weather, delivery of materials, subcontractor availability, or unknown subsurface conditions.


  • Monday - Thursday: The contractor is scheduled to continue working at the vault area (sidewalk) on Church Street, near the Santander Bank, located at 79 High Street. Construction will occur around existing utility infrastructure as the vault is repaired.
    • Impacts: A “Spot” No Parking zone will be in place during work, affecting several spaces within the work zone. A one-lane, alternating traffic pattern will be utilized on Church Street while construction activities are in progress. Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes and should expect minor delays. Customers will have access to storefronts and doorways in the downtown project area at all times.
  • As construction approaches closeout for the winter season, streetscape improvements, including the installation of new sidewalks and curbing are scheduled to resume in the spring of 2021. 


When deciding where to spend your hard-earned dollars on tonight’s dinner or a gift for a friend, consider the benefits of turning to the local, independently owned businesses downtown. There are far-reaching advantages to deciding to “shop local.” Businesses downtown are owned and operated by your neighbors! They care about, and are invested in the well-being of the community. When you shop local, your dollars stay in Clinton and help spur local development.

From every shop to the banking, legal, and municipal services that are necessary for daily life; the walkable row of businesses in the project area create an opportunity for visitors to check out the Town, and gather a sense of what makes Clinton so unique. Buying local helps to make our community stronger, benefiting neighbors in a network of economic and social relationships.

 When it comes to supporting the local businesses in the downtown area, you can do a lot of good even if you are unable to visit the business in-person. Follow businesses in the area on social media and make sure you share their deals, sales or announcements so that you can network and help them get a wider net for people who will be interested in shopping there.
