Reconstruction of Willis Street underway

June 11, 2013

The City of Bristol is scheduled to start reconstructing a portion of the Willis Street roadway surface starting Tuesday, June 11, 2013. Work will consist of pulverizing the existing pavement, recycling the material to create a new roadway base, regarding the roadway surface and installing new asphalt and curbing.
The first phase of the project will start at the Bristol / Wolcott town line and extend approximately 2,200 linear feet north. The work will take approximately three weeks to complete.
Residents are advised that the portion of driveways located within the city roadway right of way will be disturbed and reconstructed as part of the project. Once construction is complete, the city will restore affected areas by loaming, seeding, repairing walkways, and driveway aprons.
There may be minor traffic delays during construction, however the road will remain open for mail delivery, emergency vehicles, and local traffic at all times. Temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted as needed during construction.
If you should have questions or concerns about this project, please feel free to contact Public Works at (860) 584-6297.
