Traffic woes, detours expected as part of Derry water and sewer project
A section of Rockingham Road between Bradford Street and Winter Hill Road will be closed for about 10 of the scheduled 12 weeks of the scheduled project, according to public works director Mike Fowler.
“It’s a pretty ambitious schedule that encapsulates about 12 weeks of work,” said Fowler.
“The major portion of work to this section will be the replacement of a box culvert,” said Fowler. “During that, a portion of the road will be completely shut down, 24 hours per day, seven days per week, so there will be some detours.”
The culvert will be replaced by a 20-foot span with a precast, three-sided rigid frame, Bicja said. The replacement structure has been approved by the state’s Department of Transportation.
There will be signs marking out the detours on Rockingham Road.
The work will impact traffic coming in and out of the South Range Elementary School. Fowler said the public works department has met with the school department and alerted parents of South Range students about the work.
The town website will be updated weekly about the progress of the road work.
