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.

FYI of Construction projects happening in Rollinsford.

 You may notice many activities going on in Rollinsford recently.

Please plan ahead.

• Willey Street will be closed to traffic starting July 17th. ( est time is 2 weeks)

• Paving by NH DOT is continuing on Somersworth Rd., Rollins Road, and Silver St. 

• Later this summer Willy St will have culvert work done as well as the Lower Mill will also have drainage work.
