Road reconstruction project planned

Road reconstruction project planned

The Town of Plainville is proposing to reconstruct the pavement on Town Line Road from South Washington Street (CT Route 177) to Red Stone Hill. The project is currently in the design phase. The most current construction plans are posted on the municipal website. Construction funding for this project will be provided by the Connecticut Department of Transportation under the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program.

The Town of Plainville is proposing to excavate the existing pavement and road base to a depth of 17 inches and install a new 12-inch road base and a 5-inch pavement surface.

It is town and state policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community shares its concerns and comments to assist in the project development.

In addition to the pavement replacement, the town will be replacing a culvert crossing the roadway in the vicinity of Red Stone Street (Southington). The culvert replacement activities will require the closure of the roadway for a period of approximately one month. Detour signage will be positioned to assist motorists. Other proposed construction activities will include the installation of curbing, replacement of existing catch basin tops and installation of pavement markings.

A preliminary assessment of the probable construction costs indicates the value of the proposed construction activities to be approximately $1.5 million. The State of Connecticut will provide 100 percent of the construction funding. Construction is anticipated to be initiated in late spring 2021 with a probable completion date of November 2021.
