Gorham Road Reconstruction (Phase I) to Begin Monday, September 17th, 2018

posted Sep 13, 2018, 6:31 AM by Leona Oceania

The first phase of the reconstruction of Gorham Road will begin on Monday, September 17th, 2018. The entirety of this project is a five phase plan to reconstruct Gorham Road from Oak Hill to Payne Road. This first phase will include work from US Route One to Maple Avenue. Shaw Bros. has been contracted for this phase of the project, and will complete as much as possible before the snow flies. Once the weather becomes uncooperative, the project will temporarily shut down, and will resume in the spring. Work this autumn will include: erosion control, installation of culverts, catch basins, and drainage pipes, etc. Unfortunately, traffic delays and diversions will be inevitable at times. We will keep you posted regarding any such disruptions to the best of our ability. Our primary mode of communicating such information will be postings on our website and Facebook.

Eastern Road Gas Line Installation - 8.10.18

posted Aug 10, 2018, 2:32 PM by Leona Oceania

Well, progress has been made, but unfortunately, some minor delays have cropped up. In short, there have recently been two companies working on this gas line project, but for the coming week or so,  only one gas company will be working on the site. They will be completing their portion of the work, so then Unitil can return to complete their own work. It is our hope that this development will lessen the construction disruptions a bit over the coming week. (The Eastern Trail being easier to access, etc.)  

Eastern Road Gas Line Installation - 7.23.18

posted Jul 23, 2018, 8:01 AM by Leona Oceania   [ updated Aug 10, 2018, 2:18 PM ]

Unitil will begin installation of a gas distribution pipe alone Eastern Road on July 23, 2018. The work is anticipated to last throughout the month of August, although weather delays may effect this timeline. The construction will impact both traffic on Eastern Road as well as parking for the Eastern Trail. During construction activities, traffic will require alternating lanes for the length of construction along Eastern Road. Unfortunately, construction equipment will be stored in a section of the Eastern Trail parking lot on Eastern Road during the time of construction. If there are no spaces left available in the lot, feel free to park on the shoulder of Eastern Road, for use of the Eastern Trail. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Please see the Unitil Press Release below for more detailed information.

Gorham Road Gas Transmission Line Update: 7.20.18

posted Jul 20, 2018, 6:02 AM by Leona Oceania

The gas line construction on Gorham Road will include weekend work in the coming days: Saturday, July 21st and Sunday, July 22nd. The construction will primarily be in the areas of Maple Ave and Walgreens. Traffic will be marginally affected with an anticipated lane shift to accommodate work flow, as well as the expected movement of construction vehicles and equipment. Lastly, the noise level resulting from the weekend work is not anticipated to be overly disruptive.  

Have a great weekend, even if it includes a bit of construction!  

Gorham Road Gas Transmission Line Update: 7.13.18

posted Jul 13, 2018, 10:33 AM by Leona Oceania

The gas line construction on Gorham Road will return to daytime work this coming week. The primary focus of the work will be in front of Walgreens and just north of Maple Avenue.

(I don't want to get ahead of myself, but there is talk of a time in the not-so-distant-future when this part of the construction will be complete!)
