Major road in Shelton to be resurfaced

October 1, 2018

SHELTON - One of the city’s major roads will be getting a resurfacing this week.

The work on a nearly two-mile stretch of Route 110, also known as River Road, will begin Wednesday night. The project that includes milling and then resurfacing, is scheduled to end on Monday, Oct. 22.

The road will be repaved from Route 8 in downtown Shelton to Petremont Lane, near Constituition Boulevard.

The work will be done from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights.

The milling part of the job is planned Wednesday through Thursday, Oct. 11. Milling removes some of the road surface that is ground up and reapplied with asphalt to create a smoother surface.

Before Route 110 is paved, motorists can expect a rougher ride on the milled road.

The resurfacing segment of the project is planned between Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018 through Monday, Oct. 22.

The road, along the Housatonic River, is one of the main routes taken by thousands who work at Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford.

According to state Department of Transportation more than 10,000 vehicles a day travel on Route 110.
