I wanted to get out a quick update regarding Rt. 4 construction. Our contractor will be busy over the next week or so raising the manholes on Rt. 4. They need to be raised 1” to account for the new pavement. Depending on weather, May 29th is the day for the Rt. 4 paving. Traffic will be detoured along the same route as last year. You can expect to see the large message board signs along Rt. 4 within a week. There will be smaller, portable detour signs along the detour route. The day of paving, traffic moving westbound in the morning (7-10am) will be able to stay on Rt. 4 as they pave the eastbound lane and in the afternoon eastbound traffic will be allowed to stay on Rt. 4 as they pave the westbound lane. Enfield PD will be stationed at
either end of the Rt. 4 work zones enforcing the detour. If you need to enter the work zone for a specific purpose, you will be allowed, however expect some delay in your travel time. We have been told that they should be able to pave the entire area in one day, thus limiting our traffic woes.
The Town has submitted a permit to NH Dept. of Environmental Services for the repair of the Rt. 4A boat launch. The boat launch is town owned and is actually considered a Town Road. The design for the repairs will include a series of parallel concrete strips that lead into the water. Our repaired boat launch will be very similar to the launch located in Lebanon. Included with our permit is a design for a seasonal dock. The dock will give boat operators an opportunity to secure their boat while they maneuver their trailer into place, or allow another boat to launch as they retrieve their trailer. The dock is not an absolute, but it made sense to include the dock as part of our overall boat launch repair permit. Any work will likely occur this fall when the
lake levels are lower.
We have a busy week ahead for meetings, the Selectboard meets on Monday night at 6pm at Whitney Hall, the Recreation Commission meets Tuesday night at 7pm at Whitney Hall and the Heritage Commission meets Thursday afternoon at 4:30 at Whitney Hall. Any of these meetings should keep your interest and I know the committees would welcome some public input.
Have a Great Week!!!
