WOODBRODGE - The condition of the roads in Woodbridge has many citizens concerned. As time and weather take their toll on the roadways, the town is struggling to manage the integrity of its thoroughfares. Although there has been ongoing maintenance on town roads, the rate of road deterioration is outpacing the town's efforts and budget.
In 1999, the town contracted VHB, INC, an engineering firm, to assess the roads. The firm listed needed repairs, including full depth reclamation. According to Warren Connors, Operational Manager for Woodbridge's Public Works Department, the plan was to go out to bond to finance some of this project. Deciding against bonding, the town began a program of pavement preservation instead. According to Amey Marrella, First Selectwoman of Woodbridge, VHB has indicated that the town is on target with its proposed improvements.
