Welcome to the official home page of the historic town of Warwick, Massachusetts! I hope this page will help visitors locate information about our town and its history and attractions, as well as serve our townspeople as a source of helpful information and an electronic Town Hall. And see our wonderful town Newsletter (October 2014 issue) - recent, older newsletters are here; or join the Warwick-L, for even more information about our town.

The road closure and paving scheduled for today 10/1/14 has been delayed at least until tomorrow due to rain.
The Dates for the Hot mix overlay on Winchester Rd. have been confimed as Wed. 10/1 and Thurs. 10/2. At the request of Chief Shoemaker the road will again be closed to traffic from Garage Rd to the NH State line during the work. The detours will be the same as was laid out during the cold in place recycling stage of the project.Work will start on the morning of day one in the northbound lane at the bottom of the gulf area and proceed north to the state line.Once the paving process has reached Robbins Rd. no traffic will be allowed out on to Rt. 78 until that time traffic will be allowed to access Rt. 78 to travel north.Cones will be placed across the road at the bottom of the road and No Thru Traffic signs will be placed at the top at Old Winchester Rd. when access is no longer possible.The same will be true for Flower Hill Rd.,until the paving operation reaches Flower hill traffic will be allowed to travel north to NH. No traffic will be allowed out of either road to travel south. Rt. 78 will be re-opened to traffic as soon as the temperature of the pavement mat has become low enough to allow traffic without damage.
