About the Project 

welcome image3.jpg

Welcome! We are happy to see you 🎉. Winchester Street serves as a key gateway into the heart of Keene. This project will reconstruct and improve Winchester Street from the Route 101 Roundabout to the bridge over the Ashuelot River. New roundabout intersections at Key Road/Riverside Plaza and Pearl/Island Streets are included. The bridge that carries Island Street over the Ashuelot River will be replaced. In-line with the City's Complete Streets Policy, the project will address the needs of all users of the corridor including bicyclists and pedestrians.

Planned / Completed Work

11/18/2022 Update

The contractor will de-mobilize this week. Next week there may be some adjustments to the temporary signal timing. Although we intended to complete construction of the full roundabout at Key Road this year, it is no longer possible. As temperatures drop and snow begins to fall, construction becomes more difficult. Work remaining for the spring of 2023 will include curbing for the median islands and the western side of Winchester Street, concrete sidewalks, signage, and lighting. Once we receive the full schedule for 2023 we will provide further updates.

Recent work completed

  • Layout and striping for temporary winter configuration

  • Replacement of temporary concrete barriers along centerline of Winchester Street

  • Granite curbing along eastern side of Winchester Street

  • Temporary sidewalk paving for Riverside Plaza driveway

  • Temporary sidewalk patching at utility crossings

  • Raising stormwater and sewer structures to pavement surface

  • Tree removal for phase 2 overhead utility relocations
