As detailed in this space previously, the construction of a new street through the center of Brighton Mills is an important milestone in the construction, both to improve access through the site and to the Brighton Mills retailers, as well as to contain the Charlesview construction within a single fence. The new street will be an extension of Telford Street from Western Ave to Holton Street.
To keep access to Brighton Mills open at all times, the transition to the new street will happen in stages over the next six weeks. During this time, drivers and pedestrians should be prepared for the entry area to Brighton Mills to have shifted, though drive lanes and pedestrian walkways should be available at all times. The new (permanent) street configuration, complete with a sidewalk along Brighton Mills, should be complete by the end of November.
