Portion of Route 32 in Norwich to close for two weeks starting Monday
Norwich — A portion of Route 32 just south of Falvey’s Motors will be closed for about two weeks beginning Monday to allow construction crews to replace a failing corrugated metal pipe and make drainage repairs, the state Department of Transportation announced.
Signs will be posted for a detour route around the construction zone. Prior to and following the closure, alternating one-way traffic will be needed periodically for some work, which will reduce the duration of the full closure, the DOT press release said.
The $500,000 project involves removing and replacing the existing 43-inch pipe and concrete endwalls and replacing it with a larger, 60-inch diameter reinforced concrete pipe and new concrete endwalls and wingwalls. Utilities have been relocated temporarily and will be returned to their original location during the closure. The pavement will be temporarily patched and then replaced in the spring of 2020.
Brunalli Construction Company of Southington was awarded the contract for the work on Nov. 6, the DOT press release said.
