Granby plans road construction for summer months
April 28, 2015
Summer is coming and with it comes road construction season.
The Town of Granby recently put out a request for bids for an asphalt milling and overlay project for three side streets in Granby. The proposed work includes Fourth Street in Granby from Highway 40 to Diamond Avenue, Diamond Avenue from Fourth Street to First Street, including 30 feet of North Second Street, and First Street from Diamond Avenue to Highway 40 excluding where the road intersects Jasper Avenue, where the existing asphalt is still considered good.
Granby Town Manager Wally Baird said the Town hopes to begin work on the projects by the middle of June or the first part of July.
"When it is finally warm enough to do asphalt work," said Baird.
Granby officials expect the project to take roughly three to four weeks, though an exact schedule and timeline has not been established.
Baird said he does expect some portions of the roads being worked on to be closed during various stages in the construction process. While the total cost of the project is not finalized at this time, Baird said the Town has estimated a cost of about $300,000.
The three streets constitute the road construction projects Granby has planned for this summer
"That is what we are looking at for this year," Baird said. "We are going to be doing something next summer, but we don't know what it will be exactly. We still have some streets that need to be overlayed."
Bids for the asphalt milling and overlay project are due to the Town of Granby by 2 p.m. Tuesday May 19.
