The following Newport Ave road closings are planned in connection with the utility and pump station work being done near the Fitness and Wellness Center:
Monday, 4/1/13 through Friday, 4/12/13
Gaston Brothers Utilities, contractor for project, will set up traffic control and begin detouring traffic onto Granby Street.
This will be for work involving a small portion of sewer main to be installed from the middle of Newport Avenue towards the pump station site.
Monday, 4/15/13 through Saturday 5/4/13
Contractor will begin demolition of the temporary paving along Newport Avenue from the station heading north and including the intersection of Newport and North Shore Road. Permanent paving will then occur along Newport Avenue.
Permanent roadway markings will finalize the paving which will then open the road back up.
Pending weather, Newport should be permanently paved and re-opened to traffic on 5/4/13.
Access to residences and to the Norfolk Fitness and Wellness Center will remain at all times.
It will be similar to last year’s road closure on Newport Avenue, but not as long.
