Road Commissioner Report:
Jamie announced that the Town was awarded $166,493.44 in State Funds for FY 18 (work to commence after July 1 of this year). Jamie estimated that along with the budgeted Paving monies he will be able to stretch the distance that will be paved on Lincoln Hill Rd, especially after the culvert and drainage work to be done in Center Shrewsbury this summer.
Jamie indicated that there is a problem developing in and around a culvert on Eastham Rd / Mt. Holly Road by the former Wood farm. Jamie has asked culvert lining vendor to take a look at it to see if the blockage is due to collapse or sediment build up. The particular challenge with the culvert is that it is buried at a depth of over 20 feet. A legacy of the topography and back filling when the road was constructed. If the culvert has to be replaced rather than just lined, some of the funds anticipated to be utilized for pavement stretch will need to be redirected towards this culvert and drainage problem.
Bert inquired about the status of a structures grant for the Wilmouth Hill bridge (TH 11 / B 33). Jamie indicated that he is waiting for the hot mix plant to re-open rather than utilizing cold mix to fix the delamination of the bridge deck juncture with the road surface. An anticipated structures grant will address the re-decking as well as the guard rails.
Jamie will be asking the Clerk for assistance in developing a “Bid Sheet” to be used when projects are let out for bid with various vendors. A standard bid sheet would allow for uniformity with the bid responses so that comparisons are more easily discerned.
