  • ALERT: On or about April 1, Saw Mill Road will be closed to through traffic so that the Saw Mill Road Bridge can be replaced with a new bridge. The closure is expected to continue through mid November.
    The Saw Mill Road Bridge was constructed in 1929, and has been under observation since 2005. In 2013, the bridge was identified by the CT and US DOT as “functionally obsolete” and the state required full replacement for the following two reasons. The bridge and the approaches to the bridge are too narrow for the high volume of traffic that crosses the bridge daily, resulting in an unacceptable number of motor vehicle accidents on or near the bridge. The bridge also has a very shallow foundation which is insufficient to withstand the velocity of Ball Pond Brook flowing through the bridge. The resulting scour has undermined the bridge footings. For these reasons, the State and Federal governments have agreed to fund 80% of the cost of replacing the bridge, with the Town funding the remaining 20%. 
    The current bridge is an intermediate size steel arch bridge with stone faced concrete abutments and wing walls which must be dismantled. Before the old bridge can be removed, the utility lines that run above the bridge as well as those underground lines that run across the bridge must be temporarily relocated and protected during construction. The Fire Department’s dry hydrant located adjacent to the bridge must also be removed during construction and reassembled after construction. Once construction begins, cofferdams will be constructed to divert the flow of water while the new bridge is under construction. This preparatory work will take approximately 1 month. Steel piles will be driven into the underlying ledge to ensure that the footings will not be undermined by the flow of the water. Concrete footings and abutments will be poured and allowed to cure to ensure the required strength, and precast concrete beams will be placed on top of the abutments to form the roadbed. Construction of the four abutments will take approximately 3 months. The final step will be to relocate the aboveground and underground utilities, reinstall the dry hydrant and construct the road surface and drainage. This work will take approximately 2.5 months. The remaining work will include constructing the approaches to the bridge, paving and landscaping which will take approximately 2 weeks. This is a complex project with both historical and environmental implications. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 203-312-5600.

  • SCAM ALERT! From our Eversource representative:

    NEW SCAM ALERT targeting Eversource customers: we’ve heard from customers that scammers are now contacting them through text messages. In one scam, the text warned a customer that an Eversource crew was on the way to shut off their electricity if they didn’t make an immediate payment. Scammers then sent a barcode in a text and told the customer to go to a “CoinStar” machine to make a deposit using that code. Another scam threatened that Eversource would file a lawsuit against a customer for late payments and that they would be disconnected by March 20 unless they made a deposit to them. Please know this is NOT us! One red flag is that the text messages are written in poor English and are hard to understand. If you receive a threatening text, please call us ASAP to report it at 800-286-2000. 

     

    As part of National Consumer Protection Week, we want to remind our customers of some tips to avoid utility scams:

    - Our representatives will never demand instant payment

    - Beware, some sophisticated scammers can manipulate their caller ID to say the caller is with Eversource

    - You can verify you’re speaking with an Eversource rep by asking for some basic account info like your account address

    When in doubt, hang up and give us a call:

    CT: 800-286-2000
