A construction project to replace the culvert on Green End Avenue and Third Beach Road is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 21. The culvert, which is a stone structure designed to carry the water from Paradise Brook under Green End Avenue is deteriorating and needs to be replaced.
“Road based materials is getting washed through the culvert,” said Warren Hall, Town Engineer. After a major rain event, water from the culvert puddles on the road, which is a hazard in the winter when it turns to ice, said Hall.
The project, which will cost the town approximately $72,000 to complete, was awarded to Green Acres Landscaping last month by town council.
Construction will start Monday morning and is expected to be completed on June 29th or earlier, said Hall.
Road Closures During Construction
During working hours, Green End Avenue lwill be closed to thru traffic at the construction site, located 100 feet west of the Third Beach Road intersection. Working hours will be Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Local traffic will have access from the intersection of Green End at Paradise Avenue up to the construction area. The road will be re-opened at the end of each work day.
All services, including police, fire, rescue, garbage pick up, and lmail will remain operational during construction. Hall said they are working with the school department to iron out a few details for the school bus schedule, but service will remain uninterrupted.
