A two-week long paving project in Newtown gets underway today. Drivers will experience delays along Church Hill Road near the realigned intersection with Commerce Road, and Edmond Road. The repaving is part of the state Department of Transportation improvement project, which started last Spring. The 2-point-85 million dollar project is meant to enhance traffic flow and travel safety in the congested area, which has the highest local accident rate in town, by making it a conventional four-way signalized intersection. Paving will take place from 9am to 3pm daily, through Friday. It will then be nighttime work, 6pm to 6am, from Sunday through Saturday, May 18.
