EASTON, Conn. Watch out for delays because of construction work on Route 136 between routes 59 and 58. The state Department of Transportation has already begun prep work for its milling and pavement of the 3.2-mile stretch of roadway.
Milling or grinding off existing pavement will occur at each end of the project and at some side streets, said Kevin Nursick from DOT. Milling is tentatively scheduled to begin Aug. 4 and 5, but that is subject to change. Paving is tentatively scheduled to start Aug. 8 and end Aug. 15.
Nursick said some traffic delays will occur but said it will be flowing with no detours. "Speeds will be reduced, and it will be more difficult to get through," he said.
The total cost of the project is $700,000, according to Nursick.
