Update on Town Culvert Projects

The Select Board has signed a contract agreement with Parker and Daughters (Pittsfield, NH) to replace the culverts on Willey St and Pine St and to repair the drain pipe at the lower mill.

Construction is scheduled to start on Willey St on Wednesday, August 1 and then proceed to the lower mill about two weeks later; Pine St will be the third and last construction site with no current estimated start date.  The relevant sections of Willey and Pine Street will be closed to traffic during construction; residents will be able to access their driveways throughout.

The project is being funded by financing from the US Department of Agriculture Rural Development and by the town’s culvert reserve fund.

Traffic Advisory: Silver Street & Somersworth Road

Paving will start late next week on Silver Street from Route 4 (via Short Street) to the intersection of Rollins Road. Somersworth Road will also be paved next week. The approximate dates are Wednesday, July 26th – Friday, July 28th. Expect delays in those areas and seek an alternate route during that time.

Rollins Road will be paved as well but not until late August. More specific dates are not yet available.

Continental Paving is contracted to do this work on behalf of the State of New Hampshire because these are State roads.

Parking at Town Hall During Drainage Project

Gagnon Construction has begun the exterior drainage work at town hall. Chief Ducharme has agreed to help provide parking logistics during the duration of the project. 

Gagnon Construction will be starting on the side of town hall where the RPD currently parks its vehicles. RPD vehicles and officer vehicles will be parked on Fourth Street during the duration of the project. Town Hall visitors and Town Hall officials/staff will continue to park in the front of the building. 

When work moves to the Main Street side of the building, Town Hall visitors and Town Hall officials/staff will park on the side of the building. We may be able to provide some parking in the front as well.  

If you are disabled or require some special assistance reaching town hall during this time please call town hall or the RPD.

The Select Board appreciates the town’s patience during the duration of this project and thanks Chief Ducharme and the RPD for its logistical help and RPD vehicle accommodation.
