We have started preparations on Mathews Road for reclamation and repaving.  Please be aware that crews will be working in this area through the spring and summer months.

*************************************************************************************************

As we all know New England has very unpredictable weather. We have spring temperatures in winter, winter weather in spring, summer temperatures in the fall, spring rains in winter and so much more!  The weather determines our response. With that being said the following is a very general break down as to what the Highway Department does throughout the year.

Winter:
Plowing is broken down into 5 to 6 plow routes depending on the size of the storm. Our school bus routes and any emergency response by Fire, Police and Ambulance take priority. Since every storm is different the timing of what we do and when we do it changes. Generally our winter involves, plowing, salting, sanding, hauling material, clearing ice buildup from culverts, road and pot hole repair, dirt road repair and tree trimming.

Spring:
Spring is known as mud season but can come at any time. Our dirt roads are a focus this time of year due to the rain this time of year along with the snow and frost melt. Since every season is different each year what we do and when we do it changes. Generally our spring involves, road and pot hole repair, dirt road repair, grading, road paving, culvert and shoulder clean up, mowing, weed whacking and tree trimming.

Summer:
This time of year our focus continues to be our roadways. Since every season is different each year what we do and when we do it changes. Paving projects continue into the summer months along with, dirt road grading and repair, culvert and shoulder clean up, culvert replacement, road and pot hole repair, mowing, weed whacking and tree trimming.

Fall:
This time of year is when we begin preparing for winter. Since every season is different each year what we do and when we do it changes. Our preparations involve culvert and waterway clean up, grading and repair of dirt roads, road and pot hole repair, mowing, weed whacking and tree trimming.

We would like to thank the residents for their unwavering support!
