Barring rain, Monday, Aug. 1, could be a very active day for roadwork around town.
Bob Martin, director of the Department of Public Works, says a contractor is expected to be at the transfer station at 7 a.m. Monday to pave the renovated compactor area (the transfer station will be closed, as usual, on Monday).
When the work is finished there, Martin says, the contractor will travel north to topcoat Gracey Road between East Hill Road and Sexton Hollow Road. Gracey originally was expected to be closed from 7 a.m. to noon, but Martin says the early work at the transfer station could mean the job on Gracey won’t be completed until around 2 p.m.
From there, Martin says, the contractor will pave two small areas on Gracey Road near Roaring Brook Nature Center.
In addition, the town recently issued an alert that roadwork would begin on Dyer Avenue, from Simonds Avenue to Maple Avenue, on or about Monday, Aug. 1. That 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.
