Bugbee Rd. construction project set to begin

SOUTHWICK – A road construction project is set to begin next week on Bugbee Road.
The project will include drainage improvements and road paving.
“We will also be doing some work at the intersection of Bugbee and Granville Roads,” said department of public works director Randy Brown.
The project is set to begin on Tuesday and should take six to eight weeks.
Brown said drainage has been an issue for Bugbee Road residents, especially by Granville Road.
Once the drainage system is replaced lane construction will pave the road.
“They will also widen it and put in paved shoulders in some areas,” said Brown.
Signage will be placed at the Granville Road and College Highway ends of Bugbee Road letting drivers know it will be closed to through traffic during construction. Brown said there will also be police officers assisting with traffic.
“The road will remain open to residents,” Brown said.
This is the first major road paving project the town is tackling since contracting last year with a company to study all town roads.
“This was one of the roads that was identified as a priority,” said Brown.
He expects the paving to begin in early October. Brown said crack sealing will also take place this fall.
“Looking ahead we will continue with crack sealing next spring and other priority streets will be improved.
The Bugbee Road project was funded with Chapter 90 funds and an appropriation at Town Meeting.
