Nashua has streamlined its approach to sharing information about the Broad Street Parkway by creating a new section on the city website devoted to the project.

Budget documents, contact information and updates about the progress of construction dating back four years have been consolidated into a single portion of the site.

Residents can navigate there by visiting gonashua.com and clicking on the icon in the left-hand column titled “Broad Street Parkway.”

The most recent information available last week was a construction update posted May 27. The update indicates the area constituting the northern leg of the parkway has been cleared, and all asbestos encountered to date has been disposed of.

Work was continuing on the abutments for the Baldwin Street Bridge. Contractors also started constructing a new retaining wall, and about 2,000 linear feet of the parkway was set to be paved.

At the close of May, contractors were continuing earthwork east of Baldwin Street and preparing to begin work on Broad Street.

Elsewhere in the city, work was underway on bridges crossing the Nashua River and Fairmount Street. The latest construction update indicates work was progressing on a temporary trestle in the river to provide access for bridge construction.

Contractors were set to continue drilling to establish the foundation for the river bridge and to drive sheeting in place for a new retaining wall.
