Construction Activities and Detours

NOTICE: Final paving on Cummings Road, Old Tote Road, Old Colony Way, West Road, Lots Hollow Road, Eldredge Park Way, Route 6A, and Route 28 will start in September. State roads require a 90 day waiting period from when sewer pipe is installed until when paving is allowed.  Due to some observed settlement on the aforementioned Town roads, the settlement period is extended through the summer until paving can resume after Labor Day. The contractor, Robert B. Our, will be monitoring road conditions throughout the summer and repairing to acceptable conditions as necessary.
