The Road Realignment

I guess I'm just snoozing on Turtle Island when I should be awake and aware.

I had asked to be notified about any town meetings regarding the road, but I wasn't. I thought the project wasn't going through, but apparently it is...

Nonnewaug Road Realignment
Board of Selectmen Regular Meeting
April 26, 2007

Nonnewaug Road Realignment Project –Six (6) bids were submitted. Tony Ciriello of Milone & MacBroom reviewed the bids and found Dayton Construction of Watertown to be the lowest and appears to be complete. However, the bid is over budget. Selectman Crane has submitted a request to transfer funds from both a STEAP grant and a LoCIP grant. The combination of the two requests would cover the shortfall. He has received verbal approval
of the transfers and is awaiting written confirmation.
MOTION: Selectman Crane moved and Selectman Hinckley seconded to award the Nonnewaug Road Realignment Project to Dayton Construction Company,
Inc. at $357,565 contingent upon the written confirmation of transfer of funds
by the State Office of Policy and Management.


So I guess I'll be documenting some more pieces of a disappearing cultural landscape.
This is the linear stone row that leads to the old glacial lakeshore. To the right is the zigzag row...
More to come...
