Sawmill Road in New Fairfield reopened over the weekend. The closure was for the Candlewood Corners project. The work is being done to address undersized drainage, which officials also say is poorly aligned. Flooding occurs because of that, damaging properties and causing hazardous driving conditions.
Two culverts, large enough to handle rain events without flooding of properties or roadways, are being installed.
The project will take three to four months to complete. The cost is estimated at $500,000.
