Wellington Road to open for buses
A stretch of Wellington Road that has been closed during a major sewer installation project is scheduled to reopen in time for school bus traffic when Manchester schools resume classes next week. (DOUG ALDEN/UNION LEADER)
"We had to do the road closure because of the bridge construction," McNeill said. "Normally we try to keep the road open, but sometimes due to safety and blasting we do have to close portions."
Al Kula, who lives a couple hundred yards west of the new bridge, was observing the construction progress Thursday afternoon. As much as he would like to see the project completed, the limited traffic has made it a quiet summer along Wellington.
McNeill said the sewer installation will continue west on Wellington and some blasting will be required between Eastwind Drive and Tiffany Lane. That work is scheduled to begin Sept. 16 and be completed Oct. 4.
