The Redding Highway Department will be performing roadwork this week, weather permitting. The work is being done on Newtown Turnpike from Cross Highway to Route 53, Umpawaug Road from Route 107 to Topstone Road and Pine Mountain Road as part of the town's ongoing road rehabilitation effort. Umpawaug Road was paved last year, but a Micro Seal is now being applied. The Highway Department says the process has been used on other roads in Redding with great success. Newtown Turnpike was paved a few years ago and showing signs of wear. Officials say the Micro Seal will help with the longevity of the road. Pine Mountain Road will be getting a Chip Seal as part of the Cold In-place Recycling project that was done earlier this month. Residents can expect delays and detours, and are urged to take alternate routes. Center lines will be repainted sometime later this summer as part of the regular maintenance schedule.
