Reconstruction of East Shore Road to Begin Week of June 8th
The Town of Swanzey has engaged BDM Sweeper / Arlington Paving to reconstruct the paved portion of East Shore Road. The Town previously hired a contractor to remove trees within the right-of-way that were negatively affecting the road.
The primary construction work is schedule to begin the week of June 8th and motorists should expect one lane traffic and minor delays during working hours. Initial work will focus on drainage improvements and cross culverts and is expected to be completed by late June. The second phase will focus on reclaiming the existing pavement, graveling, grading and paving the road and driveway aprons. The Town expects the project to be completed by the end of the summer.
The reconstruction of East Shore Road is funded by a $3 million bond for road reconstruction projects approved by voters at the 2019 Town Meeting.
