The town is nearing completion of its 2011 road improvement program. According to town engineer Thomas Hayes, contractors are expected to wrap up their work by the end of this month. This year’s program involves repaving 14 roads. Eleven of those roads underwent simple resurfacing work that was completed by the end of August. 

The list included all of Baxter Circle, Mountain Road, Sumner Street, Burlington Street, Richard Road, Center Street, Rolling Lane, Given Drive, and Russell Circle, and parts of Upland Road and Winn Street. The other three roads - Black Horse Lane, Wing Terrace, and Ray Avenue – are being reconstructed. Hayes said due to scheduling factors, those streets are now being done.

The town is also undertaking maintenance work on other roads. Less extensive than regular repaving, maintenance involves re-sealing cracks or applying a thin surface layer to the street. Hayes said that work is now nearly done. This year’s improvements are being funded through a combination of $750,000  the town was allotted by the state through its Chapter 90 local road improvement program, and some of the approximately $1 million  budgeted by the town for road projects in fiscal years 2012 and 2013.
