Main Street Paving Begins Tonight

This just in from the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce:


Since September 14th, when Main Street milling began, along with the CL&P project, it has been a challenge to negotiate your way down Main Street , whether walking or driving!

All the work for milling and paving was done after 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. each day. CL&P has been removing vaults located under Main Street , as the salting of the street in winter, along with the rain and snow, has deteriorated them. They are being placed under the sidewalks, where they will be better protected.

All road work has been completed, so today, September 27th is when paving will begin at 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday (weather permitting) and will continue with these hours until the paving and striping is completed!

CL&P will continue with the sidewalk work and depending on weather (rain), all work, paving included, should be completed by Friday, October 1st.

So I'm starting a pool--a buck a square-on how soon after Main Street is repaved and re-lined will the Water Dept. or some other utility deem it necessary to dig up the street again.
Any takers?

I'm betting that someone in City Hall will decide to build a parking garage right in the middle of Main Street, once the work is done.

Come to think of it...
