Finley Hill Road
The remaining culvert repair is almost complete, and DPW will reset the catch basin tops. Paving is expected to take place in the next couple of weeks, and one lane of the road will remain open for traffic.
South Main Street Culvert Replacements: This work is in progress, with four (4) major culverts (headwalls and pipes) being totally replaced this year. The road will remain closed to thru traffic until completion which we expect in October. We will repair the headwalls of another four (4) culverts next spring before paving. We don't expect any road closure due to these additional culvert repairs. These culverts are being replaced using $450K of Town funds from Capital & Road Materials.
Next year we anticipate using $1.1M of LOTCIP (Local Transportation Capital Improvement, a state grant) to replace the roadway from the intersection of South Road (the "V") to approximately #163 South Main. Approximately $95K of Town funds will be used towards design of the road and replacing the guardrail system. Due to the length of this road, and the complexity of repairs and funding sources, the repairs and replacement must be done over time. It will be worth the wait!
MES Parking Lots: The paving, striping and curbing of the main parking lots and the turn-around at the entrance to MES is nearing completion. We were able to add in having the west lot paved due to a lower-than-expected bid by Annelli Paving. This $289,855 project at MES looks great!
The Town has engaged Priority Landscaping, LLC to replace the underdrain on the south side (even numbers) in the shoulder of the road, install 6 underdrains laterally across the road at the catch basin location, and repair and install catch basins. The work area is from 32 Williamsburg Road east to the end of the cul de sac. We anticipate work will begin on August 9th or August 12th, and we anticipate completion of the project by October 15th.
The contractor will close the road when installing the underdrains across the road between the catch basins during the work day, with each crossing taking 1 day to construct. The contractor will give advance notice to the residents below the closure point at least 24 hours in advance, so arrangements to move your vehicles can be made. There will be a steel plate on site in case there is a need for emergency vehicles or service vehicles to provide access below the closure point, if need arises.
Construction Plans are available for inspection in the Building/Land Use Department during normal Town Hall business hours. The Town anticipates paving Williamsburg Road in the Summer/Fall of 2020.
Work is scheduled to begin Monday, July 1st for four culverts on South Main Street. Click here for full notice.
