Storm water drainage repairs and installation have been completed on Nashville Road in Bethel. The Highway Department says that was done in preparation of rebuilding the road. Nashville Road will be closed daily between Route 53 and Nashville Ext. to through traffic during paving operations.
Emergency and school bus traffic will not be interrupted. Residents will have access if they live within the project boundaries.
The road will be torn up and graded starting Tuesday, continuing through August 23rd. That means there will be a loose gravel road surface for a time. Paving is scheduled for the 24th through 26th.
The Highway Department says the road closure helps to provide a safe work zone, and makes the project go quicker.
Driveway aprons and curbing will happen about 20 days after paving. Curbing will only be installed in areas prone to erosion, and areas that cause water run off problems.
