Proposed Schedule Week of 7/6/15, Shrewsbury STP 1443(44) [Lincoln Hill Rd.]

 PROJECT LOCATION: Lincoln Hill Road

The Shrewsbury STP bridge/culvert project is located at the bottom of Lincoln Hill Road, near the Fillmore property.

BRIDGE CLOSURE: Lincoln Hill Rd. is scheduled to be closed to through traffic on Monday, July 6, 2015 and will remain closed for a period of no longer than 28 days.

BRIDGE WORK: Crews are scheduled to begin excavation and removal of the existing culvert beginning Monday, 7/6. This work will continue throughout the entire week.

STREAM DIVERSION: Crews are scheduled to excavate a temporary channel and install a stream diversion pipe in order to minimize the impact to the surrounding environment and ecosystem within the project limits. This work is scheduled to begin on 7/10/15.

WATER LINE: Temporary water line installation is scheduled for completion early in the week. This will ensure that water service to residences in and around the project area will not be interrupted during construction.

 DETOUR: Detour route and signage are the responsibility of the Town of Shrewsbury and will be in place prior to this closure.

TRAFFIC DELAYS: Lincoln Hill Rd. will be closed to through traffic beginning Monday, 7/6/15. Please follow signed detours and plan your travel accordingly. Please note that this closure applies to bicycle and pedestrian traffic as well.
