Rockingham Road to reopen Wednesday
The project that began in September to build a new bridge and install water and sewer utilities is running on schedule, said Mike Fowler, public works director.
As part of the project, a section of Rockingham Road between Bradford Street and Winter Hill Road was closed in September. That section is scheduled to reopen no later than 4 p.m. Wednesday, Fowler said.
The work on the section of Rockingham Road is part of a multi-phase project to extend sewer and water to the intersection where Grandview Flea Market was located, Fowler said before work began. The work would proceed south and north, toward the Robert Frost Farm. The cost of the multi-phase project would be approximately $5 million, according to officials.
A major portion of the work involved replacing a culvert with a 20-foot span, according to Hoyle and Tanner engineer Josif Bicja. Corrugated metal pipes under the culvert were heavily rusted, Bicja said.
Fowler said the crews benefited from a stretch of relatively dry weather conditions that extended throughout the project.
Councilors praised Fowler and the crews for keeping to the schedule and completing the work on time.
“I’ve been down there looking over the situation, and I think Mike and the contractor did a great job, and we need to tip our hats to them,” Dimmock said.
