Road resurfacing scheduled to begin

The Town of Orange annual chip sealing program will begin Monday, June 5, and continue to Friday, June 16 weather permitting. It will take approximately two weeks to complete the work. The pavement maintenance procedure will involve spreading and rolling small crushed stone on liquid asphalt and applying it to the existing road surface. For your safety, please obey flagman or truck driver's signals when driving on roads while work is being done. Do not park vehicles on the road during this time. If a vehicle is left, it will be subject to towing at the owner's expense.

The roads treated will have loose stone for several days following work. Residents must drive slowly and carefully during this period, since the surface will have less traction.

The roads scheduled for resurfacing are determined by the amount of use and the condition. Before road resurfacing program begins, some roads will be skid paved to smooth broken and rough portions. Roads to receive resurfacing are listed as follows, in the order by which they will be done: New Haven Avenue, Halliwell, Ferry, Marble, Quintard, Crofut Road, Lindy Street, Wellington Drive, Manley Heights, Woodland (old part), Bishop Dr., Russell Court, Highmeadow Lane, Shepherd Lane, St. Johns Drive, Pryde Drive, Royal Lane, Estelle Court, Rogers Road, Lambert Road, Riverside Drive, Zak Court and Wepawaug Road.
