BERLIN – As part of continuous road improvements in town, 20 roads are set to be paved this year.

“It’s about the amount we try to get done each year,” said Jack Healy, Acting Town Manager and director of Public Works. “The last few years we’ve been on schedule.”

Each year between five to six miles is paved.

Last year the council authorized up to $4 million to cover two more years of the town’s road improvement program. Healy said about $2 million was budgeted.

The 20 roads, which total 5.69 miles, includes heavily traveled areas like Four Rod Road and  Kensington Road. Other roads include Park Drive, Edgewood Road (700 block south to Park Drive) and Norton Lane.

“It’s been awhile since they’ve been done,” Healy said.

Roads will be paved from April to October. Residents can expect temporary lane closures as crews grind the road and then pave.

Healy said there will be no major detours.
