Mayor offers update on New Milford roadwork

July 31, 2018

New Milford Mayor Pete Bass updated the public on upcoming and ongoing road projects in town with several recent posts to his Facebook page.

Drainage work started on Youngs Field Road this week, which included replacing old corrugated metal pipes with new high density polyethylene pipes. Replacing the catch basin tops at Railroad Street is slated for next week. Both roads will be milled, paved and re-marked with center lines, shoulder lines, parking spots and crosswalks.

There will be minor detours and drivers can expect delays.

Work is underway for Town Farm Road, which will be milled, partially curbed, paved and marked. There is also drainage work.

In August, the town will start milling Great Brook Road, Blue Bonnet, Sega Drive and Roadside Court, though not necessarily in this order. Milling is also expected to start soon on Youngsfield Road, Railroad Street, Carmen Hill #1 and #2 , Cedar Hill Road and Littlefield Road. A timeline has not been announced for these roads.

Construction is also expected to start in mid-August on Long Mountain and Squire Hill roads. The bids were recently awarded to M&O construction for about $2.8 million.

Work is continuing on the Still River rotary after the concrete testing passed. Traffic will soon switch to the opposite side of the rotary once that work is complete and following a meeting with the police department.

Dayton, the contractor for the Mill Street bridge project, is working on drainage and backfill of the abutments. It should take about another week.
