Throughout the period covered by this look-ahead, work will take place below ground at Forest Hills Station to install electrical components associated with the jet fans and the new head-house.

  • For the area between Washington Street and Cemetery Road:
    • Installation of drainage structures along Circuit Drive
    • Installation of drainage structures on Morton Street (Route 203) at the bottom of the Forest Hills Cemetery driveway
    • Installation of traffic signal interconnection cables
