Work On Main Street In Glastonbury Now Later In April

GLASTONBURY, CT — Construction work on Main Street is slated to begin on April 22, 2024, or roughly two weeks later than previously anticipated, town officials said Monday.

“This delay is strategically planned to coincide with brick paver leads times and is intended to support project efficiencies once work has commenced,” town officials said.

Work on Main Street is designed to “provide significant improvements to pavement conditions” as well as “safety and recreational enhancements” for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicular traffic. The project area will include the portion of Main Street that runs from approximately Ripley Road to New London Turnpike.

Work is slated to begin on or around April 22, and will continue for approximately 120 days. During that time frame, there will be impacts to on-street parking, isolated lane closures, and some day-time and overnight hour construction, officials said.

Milling and paving operations will be restricted to the overnight hours (10 p.m. to 6 a.m.), but other project component work will occur during typical daytime construction hours (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

This project is supported by the State Local Transportation Capital Improvement grant, which will fund 100 percent of construction costs. The design was completed by the Town of Glastonbury Engineering Division and the construction will be inspected and administered by town staff members.

The area was last paved in 1998, thus maintenance operations at this time are necessary to ensure longer-term viability of the overall Town Center pavement structure and cost-effective pavement management, officials said.

“While construction work will create some temporary inconveniences, the project is essential at this time and completion will result in area improvements for all. The town appreciates the community’s patience as we work to ensure the safety of our roadways,” officials said. .
