The town is advising that roadwork will begin on Dyer Avenue, from Simonds Avenue to Maple Avenue, on or about Monday, Aug. 1. The work will focus on drainage improvements, resurfacing, curb installation and the reconstruction of driveway aprons as required.
According to the town, Dyer Avenue will be open to local traffic at all times during construction, but there could be delays. Detours will be provided during construction activities to reduce thru traffic on Dyer Avenue.
Since access to the community center / library and Canton Intermediate School will be impacted during construction, the drainage and surface improvements included in this section of roadway will be completed first, before the start of the school year, according to the town.
The town says driveway aprons to local properties may be replaced within the public right of way to match the elevation of the new roadway pavement. According to the town, the contractor is required to coordinate any temporary closures of a private driveway in advance of the removal and replacement a driveway apron. There may, however, be minor delays in leaving or entering affected driveways at certain times.
The town says questions should be directed toward Jeff Shea, project administrator, at email@example.com or at 860-693-7855.
