Dunham Street Reconstruction
The project has been awarded to American Industries of Jewett City. There was a delay in the start because of the order time for granite curbing. Some initial work such as tree removal has begun, but the majority of the work will be done in the spring of 2022. This project entails a total reconstruction of Dunham St., complete with sidewalks on the entire length.
Franklin Square Roundabout
The Nunes Companies Inc. completed this work in September, just in time for National Roundabout Week.
Boswell Avenue Sidewalks
This sidewalk project was funded through a Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $200,000. A new sidewalk was installed by Evergreen Landscaping and Construction from Oak Street to Roath Street. This project also included the reconstruction of 11 sets of concrete stairs and railings within the project limits. Work was completed in June.
Uncas Leap Heritage Park
The abatement, selective demolition, and stabilization of the granite mill building was completed in October. The next phase of the project, which will utilize American Recovery Plan funds, is just starting. The City is in the process of hiring a consultant to design the planned improvements to the Park, which will include a restroom facility, pathways, limited parking, overlooks, a story circle and site amenities such as benches, fencing improvements, and lighting.
