Planned road work in Redding has been postponed to tomorrow. Unexpected contractor delays means that the work on Simpaug Turnpike did not start yesterday. The construction is taking place tomorrow between Station Road and Marchant Road. Redding officials say efforts will be made to have one-way, alternating traffic, but drivers are urged to use alternated routes.
Construction in Bethel was competed on the Walnut Hill-Hoyt Road project. Both roads are have reopened. There will be a second phase to the project in about a month, to apply a high-friction surface to reduce slipping on the hill in icy weather.
Finishing touches are also being applied this week on the new Plumtrees-Whittlesey bridge. The retaining wall being installed will match the design of the bridge.
