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:

Shadyside Avenue is part of the 2016 Roadway Improvements Program bid, which is valued at approximately $612,649.00 The project is scheduled to reconstruct 2.5 miles of roadway, reconstruct drainage as needed, and other incidental work.

Scope of Work:

Beginning the week of 10/31/2016, infrastructure improvements will commence by replacing two antiquated culverts.  The first culvert will be replaced by 11/4 and the second culvert will be replaced by 11/9.  The disturbed areas will be temporarily patched for the winter.  These drainage improvements are in anticipation of pavement rehabilitation which will be in the spring/summer of 2017. Shadyside Ave is scheduled for a reclaim treatment which involves pulverizing the existing roadway into a gravel sub-base material, re-grading and compacting this sub-base material, and then installing the base course pavement. The final "top-course" of pavement will be installed a short time thereafter. Likewise, final improvements will include blending driveway aprons (only as necessary), loaming and seeding disturbed areas, and final cleanup.
