Willis Street reconstruction begins Thursday

The City of Bristol is scheduled to start reconstructing a portion of the Willis Street roadway surface starting Thursday, July 25. Work will consist of pulverizing the existing pavement, recycling the material to create a new roadway base, re-grading the roadway surface and installing new asphalt and curbing.
The construction will start approximately 200 linear feet south of the Willis Street / Northmont Road Extension intersection and extend approximately 2,600 linear feet south towards the Bristol / Wolcott town line. 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, contact Public Works at (860)584-6297.
