Stonington - The Highway Department has released its schedule for the reconstruction of Greenhaven Road from Route 1 to the railroad bridge, which begins today when town crews begin preparations along the road. Work was delayed until now so school buses would not be impacted.
Crews will also begin cutting away driveway aprons of homes along Greenhaven Road so they will be ready for paving. Homeowners should have continued access to their driveways.
At around 7 a.m. Monday, milling of the road will begin at the intersection of Route 1 and Greenhaven Road. The road will remain open to one-way traffic.
On June 20 and 21, crews will grind up approximately 1,600 feet of Greenhaven Road between house numbers 45 and 95. During this time, Greenhaven Road will be closed to through-traffic from Route 1 to Lindsay Lane from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Residents who live in homes along this section of the road will be able to access their driveways but should expect delays. All residents of Palmer Neck Road will be able to get in and out to Route 1.
It will then take the highway department another week or two to regrade the road and reset the catch basin tops in preparation for final paving. The department's goal is to pave the road before July 4. During paving, the road will be open to one-way traffic.
Any changes to the schedule will be posted at www.stonington-ct.gov. Residents with questions should call the highway department at (860) 535-5055.
