Salem selectmen approve updated 10-year road plan
The plan lays out the roads that will be reconstructed as well as maintained over the coming decade.
Over the next 10 years, 27 miles of road are scheduled to be reconstructed and 44 miles of the town’s 182 miles of public roads will be maintained, according to Bob Puff, who serves as the town’s engineering director as well as the chairman of its road committee.
Selectman Michael Lyons noted that residents will be able to see if their roads are in the plan on the town’s website.
The road plan assumes that the town will continue to fund road projects at the 2014 approved figure of $4.615 million annually with an inflation adjustment of three percent per year.
Over the next three years, he said at least one neighborhood road is scheduled for reconstruction. He also noted that from 2018-20, the focus will be almost exclusively on neighborhood roads.
In 2015, the roads slated for reconstruction include Main Street from Pleasant Street to North Policy Street, North Policy Street near the town’s treatment plant, and Cornwall Court.
