AVON — Starting May 6 and continuing through June 7, the town of Avon will be milling and paving Avon Road between Highway 6 and Nottingham Road. Also included with the project is replacement of several concrete sidewalk ramps and damaged curb and gutter. A widened crosswalk will be constructed across Avon Road replacing the existing crosswalk just north of the Benchmark Road roundabout. The Avon Road Asphalt Overlay Project will take approximately four weeks to complete and will be performed by Elam Construction on behalf of the town.
Asphalt milling work will be performed at night between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., beginning the evening of May 6 and completed in approximately four days. Concrete replacement work and asphalt paving will be performed during the day between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. with work crews taking a break between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. to accommodate heavier afternoon traffic. Single lane closures will be in effect in immediate work areas throughout the day and traffic control will be provided at all times during the construction hours to direct motorists and pedestrians.
