Brookfield Police are alerting motorists to a road closure, which begins Tuesday. North Mountain Road in Brookfield will be closed to through traffic starting Tuesday to allow for construction of a water pipeline up the hill and through the sharp curves in the roadway. The closure will be in place from 7am to 5pm on weekdays through the completion of the project.
Police say the length of the closure will depend on how much rock is encountered as the trench is dug. As work progresses on the straighter sections of roadway, police say every effort will be made to have the road open to alternating one-way traffic.
Signs will be posted about detours.
Traffic will be blocked at Laurel Hill Road and North Mountain Road on the east side and at Flax Hill/Gereg Glen Roads and North Mountain Road on the west side. Motorists on the west side of the closure should use Candlewood Lake Road to continue to Federal Road at White Turkey Extension or use Elbow Hill Road to access Federal Road at Silvermine Road. Motorists east of the closure should use Federal Road and Elbow Hill Road to access Candlewood Lake Road and the various roads on that side.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Brookfield Police Department at 203-775-2575.
