Resurfacing of a Portion of Bassetts Bridge Road
The Department of Public Works will soon resurface a portion of Bassetts Bridge Road. I have scheduled the project to begin on May 14, 2018 (weather dependent) and expect completion within 5 working days. So that you will know what to expect, I would like to describe the work process.
PHASE 1: A contractor hired by the Town will mill off two inches of the existing pavement in various areas of the roadway. This process will leave any catch basins exposed, which we will mark for visibility. The road surface will be rough; but travelable.
PHASE 2: After the milling is complete, the contractor will apply a new layer of asphalt to the street surface.
We ask that you do not park on the road from 6:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. You will always have access to your driveway. However, when the equipment is directly in front of your driveway, access may be restricted for a few minutes. Please drive with caution during the course of this work. In any event, we will not be working on May 28, 2018.
If you have any questions, please call our Administrative Office at 860-429-3331. Thank you in advance for working with us during this resurfacing project.
