Water line - Road Improvements

Colchester - posted Aug, 30 2012

COLCHESTER- The State of Connecticut has notified the Town of Colchester that the planned extension of sewer and water lines will commence on Sept. 4. Work is scheduled to begin on the Water Main extension within the second week of September. Traffic control during the time that work is being conducted within the roadway for Route 85 from Lake Hayward Road to the Parum Road (Route 354) intersection will be as follows: Monday through Friday : From 6 am to 8 am; there will be one lane in each direction open for traffic. From 8 am to 4 pm; there will be only one lane open for traffic and will utilize a manual (direction by police or flagmen) alternating traffic pattern between north bound and south bound traffic. Motorists should expect delays for traveling through this area and are encouraged to seek alternate routes for through traffic ( i.e. North Bound- Lake Hayward Road to Parum Road (Route 354) to South Main Street (Route 85)) and South Bound – Parum Road to Lake Hayward Road to New London Road) in order to avoid delays. From 4 p.m. to 6 a.m. there will be one lane in each direction open for traffic. The above traffic control patterns will continue for several months until completion of the water line (70 days) and sewer line (up to 300 days) within the roadway. Additionally, the State Department of Transportation will be resurfacing pavement on Route 85 from Lake Hayward Road towards the Salem town line. The project will commence during the first week of September with the duration of approximately five days.
