Bristol’s Department of Public Works begins reconstruction of several local roads

Road repairs began on Sherman Street, Mills Street, Putnam Street, Walnut Street, Grove Street and Westwood Road from house 72 to house 244. The project is expected to take approximately four weeks. The roads will remain open during construction; however residents are encouraged to take alternate routes to avoid delays. Access to residential properties will be maintained. According to a project summary from the Public Works Department, “the work is being performed due to the deteriorated condition of the roadway surface. The existing horizontal and vertical alignment of the road will not be substantially altered.” The work will consist of reclaiming (pulverizing) the existing roadway pavement and installing a new bituminous roadway surface and curbing. This process may create dust, but water will be applied to the surface to reduce the impact. The pulverizing process may also cause vibrations. Residents of nearby homes are advised to relocate and safeguard items that may fall as a result.
