Program Background:
The goal of the Town’s annual roads program is to recommend adequate investment in the Town’s 107 mile roadway network to ensure the network does not deteriorate to a point which would result in more costly periodic repairs.  Utility improvement opportunities are also identified and implemented within the roads program when appropriate. This can include drainage replacements or enhancements, water main and sewer main replacements and/or private utility expansions from National Grid (gas main), Verizon (Broadband internet/cable), etc.

Project Overview:
Lowell Road is part of the 2017 Roads Program bid, which is valued at approximately $1,000,000. The project is scheduled to reconstruct 5.4 miles of roadway, reconstruct drainage as needed, and other incidental work.

Lowell Road Scope of Work:
This phase of the 2017 Roads Program will begin in the spring of 2018. In this phase, a portion of Lowell Road is scheduled for a mill and overlay treatment. This involves the removal of the top course (1.5”) of pavement. Utility castings are then adjusted in addition to other incidental work in preparation for installing 1.5” of new pavement. The reconstruction is then  finalized by completing the remaining work which consists of line striping, loam & seeding disturbed roadway shoulders, blending driveway transitions (if necessary), and final clean-up.

Week of 4/23/18:
CPW's contractor Lazaro Paving will begin installing construction signage, variable message boards, and erosion control along Lowell Road. In addition curb ramps will be installed at the intersections of Barrett's Mill Road, Hildreth Lane and Indian Spring Road. The road is tentatively scheduled to be milled the week of May 14, 2018. Notifications will be given prior to the milling and paving operations. See schedule below for further details.
