Fisher Street Bridge Closure                        

October 3, 2019

The bridge over the Assabet River on Fisher Street will be closed due to repairs from Monday October 7, 2019 through mid-December. We recently met with our colleagues at Westborough DPW, Fire, and Police to discuss the impact that this closure will have on our students and families. 

The east side of Fisher Street, up to #44 Fisher, will essentially become a dead-end road. 

A bus stop will be created at the intersection of Gary Circle and Fisher Street to service the students on the east side of Fisher Street and Gary Circle neighborhood. Students should use the sidewalk that runs along the north side of Fisher Street to access the newly created bus stop. 


On the west side of Fisher Street, our buses will follow the detour that will flow traffic via Maynard Street to Milk Street.

Additionally, no foot traffic will be allowed in the construction zone on either side of the Assabet river (eg. students will not be able to walk to/from Gibbons from the opposite side of the bridge-Kimball, Mayard, Assabet streets).

Please expect that there will be some delays as a result of the construction and traffic detours. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together with the town to manage this work.

Thank you.

AES Bus #12 will stop at the corner of Maynard St and Fisher St for 51 Fisher St, then drive Maynard St. to Milk St to Kings Grant St to Gary Circle, where it will pick up students from 44,43,40,38,32 Fisher St. at 8:30am at the temporary bus stop at Gary Circle and Fisher St (this will be about 5 minutes later from the current time).
