DIVIDEND ROAD MILL AND PAVE - SUMMER 2019
The town has plans to mill and pave Dividend Road in the summer of 2019. This project will be 100% funded through the Connecticut DOT - Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP).
The Engineering firm of VHB conduct a traffic and pavement analysis on Dividend Road in the fall of 2018. Result of their study found the Pavement Condition Indexes (PCI) to be 59 from Main St to Forest Street and 41 from Forest St to Old Forge Road, both considered to be "poor condition" on the PCI curve.
Due to Dividend Roads location on PCI curve and the increasingly poor rideablility, the town will mill and pave the road following VHB's recommendations. This would include milling Dividend Road to a depth of 4.0", overlay with 2 - 2.0" course of asphalt. This will restore the pavement to a PCI rating "excellent" (90 or better), which is typical for a new road. This will provide a minimum pavement life of 15 years. Also included in the project are replacement of catch basin tops, curbing and pavement markings.
Hours of operation will be Monday - Friday, 7:00 am to 5:00 pm with no weekends or Town observed holidays. The Contractor will maintain one lane of through traffic which may require one lane alternating traffic or detours. Access to all driveways will be maintained throughout the project. If a temporary closure of a driveway is necessary, the Contractor will coordinate with the owner to determine the time period of the closure. Ramping to allow access to driveways shall be done as soon as possible and in no instance later than the end of the work day. The contractor will be liable for all damage claims in the work area.
As with any construction project, there will be some temporary inconvenience. We thank you for your cooperation.
