After an Independence Day break, work resumed on Waterbury roadways. This week, the following areas were scheduled for construction activity:
• New water line installation work in Segments 3 and 4 on the left side (even-numbered properties) of South Main Street, and remaining drainage work in those segments.
• The road cut continued from Batchelder Street to Demeritt Place on the right side (odd-numbered properties) of South Main Street.
• Conduit work across from Rusty Parker Park.
• The beginning stages of drainage work began on Elm and Randall streets this week, and should take approximately two weeks.
• Crews finished shimming — leveling out the road surface — and paving the section of Route 100 from the I-89 interchange heading north near the Shaw’s access driveway in Waterbury, and a single lane from Shaw’s through its intersection with Guptil Road.
• Crews will continue paving Route 100 starting in Waterbury and heading north during nighttime hours, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Guardrail installation was anticipated to be completed midweek.
• Time permitting, crews will begin to improve drainage along Route 100 throughout the project area, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
