Dirt Roads

While most of us have enjoyed the January thaw, it, along with the recent moisture laden storms have taken a toll on our dirt roads.

Any attempt to repair the roads at this time would be futile and risk further damage to the roads as well as the town’s equipment. It is not possible to repair these roads until spring after things dry out and we can come in with the heavy equipment needed to do the work.

As a preventive measure, we ask that you schedule delivery of oil or propane after the roads refreeze and are frozen. This will help reduce┬áthe damage that heavy vehicles inflict. It is in everyone’s best interest to minimize heavy traffic on dirt roads this time of year so that if there is an emergency, Fire and Ambulance crews can respond without delay.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation,
Robert Meehan
Highway Superintendent
