Pavement Work Base Layer Driveway Aprons

On Wednesday, September 21, 2022, the Town of Millbury’s Department of Public Works / Highway Department’s subcontractor, J.H. Lynch & Sons, Inc., has started laying down the base (binder) layer of asphalt on the driveway aprons and sidewalks serving households on Thomas Hill Road, Aldrich Avenue, and Captain Peter Simpson Road and will start hydroseeding areas that were loamed. A finish layer of asphalt will follow.

Yesterday, Tuesday, September 20, 2022, the Town of Millbury Tree Warden and tree contractor started removing the trees in the right of way of Rice Road, in front on 1 Rice Road, which were dead and dying.

The Millbury Department of Public Works / Highway Department are still waiting for the utility companies to relocate the utility pole and fire hydrant at the intersections of Rice Road and South Main Street to begin the reconfiguration into a more standard T intersection and eliminate the out only part of Rice Road as it blended into South Main Street. The monument is also planned to be moved away from the curb line on South Main Street somewhere in the now discontinued portion of Rice Road (the exit only portion that blended into South Main Street).

There has been a lot of positive feedback about the work being performed and the gratitude from our neighborhood.

Please advise your neighbors, in case they may not be aware.
