Road Reconstruction to Begin in Poland

Poland – A highway reconstruction project will begin in Poland on July 1st beginning at the intersection of Brown Road, extending northerly toward the 5 points intersection.

This project on Route 26 involves clearing of trees and brush, excavation, laying new sub-base and paving operations. In addition, there will be drainage improvements and other highway safety upgrades.

Work will be performed Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. with occasional Saturdays as needed. Alternating traffic with flaggers will be in place on this 1.07 mile stretch of Route 26. Crews will work to minimize the length of the lane closures during peak travel times in the morning and afternoon.

Work will continue into the late fall and then be suspended for the winter. Crews will be back in the spring of 2014 to complete the project.

K&K Excavation of Turner is the contractor for this $2.2 million project.
