• We Dig Barre: Work continues around city
    May 20,2013

    As you all know, last week’s schedule was completely changed due to weather conditions. Hopefully this update will bring you information that will hold true for the coming week.

    Once again, all paving will occur at night. Our hours of operation will be from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. On May 16, we paved South Main Street, Prospect Street, and Church Street, and then began Elm Street. On Friday, we planned to pave Main Street, Washington Street, and Depot Square. Yesterday, we were planning to catch up on any unfinished paving from Main Street and then move on to Summer Street.

    Today, we start the new week wrapping up any loose ends on Summer Street and then we’ll begin Maple Avenue. This leaves Tuesday, May 21, as our last night of paving to finish up any remedial work. With luck this is the end of the paving operation. Weather conditions are the only thing that could make us change our schedule.

    Please pay close attention to message boards as they will have information pertaining to our most recent operations. Traffic will be rerouted at different times. Please be patient and communicate your needs so we can help you to the best of our abilities. Also, notices are being handed out about not parking on specific streets on different nights. Pay close attention to these notices. Cars left on the streets that have received notice could be subject to towing at the owners’ expense.

    On May 20-23, there will be some subcontractors on site. Meter posts are scheduled to be installed. We will need to continue with night work to allow the line stripers to paint the permanent road markings. Remember, this is the final product. Use caution when traveling around a work zone.

    Again, please pay close attention to the message boards, as well as traffic detour signs, advanced warning signs, uniformed traffic officers, and flaggers who will be posted at strategic locations for traffic control. Expect minor delays at times and plan your commute accordingly. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Barre “Big Dig” project please contact me by cell at (518)-578-9629 or by email to beth@luckbros.com. The office number is (802)-479-5775.
