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.

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.

Water Ban Lifted

At its meeting on Monday, May 8, the Select Board removed the water ban restrictions relating to the drought situation in NH.   Based upon the state drought monitor updated on 5/4/17, Strafford County is almost completely drought-free with only the southern reaches of the county in an “abnormally dry condition.”

The Board appreciates the cooperation of all during the water ban and encourages us all to be mindful of this most precious of resources.
