Town To Pave 8 Local Roads


Town officials last week approved an approximately $1.25 million contract with a Norwalk-based company to pave a number of local roads.

The Board of Selectmen during its regular meeting April 2 voted unanimously in favor of the contract with FGB Construction, one of four companies to bid on it, according to Public Works Director Tiger Mann.

The company has “done excellent work with minimal complaints from the residents and the motoring public,” Mann said at the meeting, held in Town Hall and via videoconference.

The roads to be paved include Danforth Drive, Indian Rock Road, Lantern Ridge Road, Laurel Road from Canoe Hill to Turner Hill, Pond View Lane, Reeder Lane, Toby’s Lane and West Hills Road.

It’s “the first portion of our paving program for this year,” Mann said.

First Selectman Dionna Carlson and Selectmen Steve Karl and Amy Murphy Carroll voted 3-0 in favor of the 1,243,954.25 contract, which entails milling and reclaiming, then paving.

Karl asked when the work would commence. Mann said the week of April 8. 

“He wants to hit the ground running next week,” Mann said. “The asphalt plants opened early. They opened it mid-March. Normally they open around mid-April, but they opened early.”

He added that the town has received the most complaints regarding the stretch of Laurel Road.

“Got a complaint this morning on it,” he said.
