In addition to the milling and paving of 19 roads, this project involved extensive concrete work prior to paving. Crews installed more than 15,080 square feet of aprons and 3,000 linear feet of curb at a cost of $323,726. With the milling and paving costs of $992,636, the total cost for this paving project was $1.3 million.
Roads paved during this project include Birchfield Court, Catherine Street, Elm Avenue, Linden Street, Walton Way, Welbourn Lane, Welling Way, Wellsley Court, Wellsley Lane, Westbrook Road, Whinstone Street, Whitfield Lane, Whitmore Lane, Whitney Lane, William Street, Wilmont Turn, Woodbine Street, Wycomb Court, and Wycomb Place.
Superintendent Losquadro said, “Because of the size of this neighborhood – and the state of deterioration of so many of the roadways – it was necessary to split this paving project into two phases. I was happy to complete phase one, bringing much relief to area residents and motorists, and I look forward to returning to this neighborhood to complete phase two next year.”
Councilwoman Bonner said, “Thanks to the men and women of the Highway Department, these newly paved roads are ready for the winter months. The safety of our residents is a top priority and I will continue to work with Superintendent Losquadro to identify roads that need repaving in the future.”
Councilwoman Cartright said, “The Highway Department continues to work its way through the Town to address paving concerns throughout Brookhaven. This project, which is in a central area of Brookhaven, is a positive continuation of the long-term efforts to address all of Brookhaven's 3,500 miles of roadway.”
