PAVING WORK ON THE SCHEDULE
MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (SEPTEMBER 19, 2022) – The Town Council approved a contract to do significant paving.
According to paperwork before the council Monday night, East Coast Landscaping & Construction of Portsmouth was the low bidder of four submissions for a collection of work, including repaving the Second Beach parking lot.
Also part of the upcoming package include paving of Harold Lane, Peckham Lane, Gunning Court and the entrances to the Four Corners Cemetery as well as fixes to parts of Green End Avenue, Rego Road, Orchard Avenue and Newport Avenue and sewer and drainage repairs.
The work in the beach parking lot is expected to be done before next Memorial Day. An initial binder coat of pavement will be put down on all the other roads by next spring, with a final pavement down before Aug. 31, 2023.
“We try to stay on top of infrastructure needs across the community,” Public Works Director Robert Hanley said. “This paving, drainage and sewer work is all part of that evolving process.”
Historically, Middletown has placed quite a bit of emphasis on fixing and upgrading its existing roads.
Every year, the council tries to set aside about $1 million in funding in the annual municipal budget to pay for that work. That way, the town can upgrade its existing infrastructure without having to go out to bond every year.
Previously, East Coast has done a number of projects successfully across the town. Among those include replacing JH Dwyer Drive; sewer, drainage and road work on Miantonomi Avenue and in the Slate Hill Farm neighborhood; installing solar lighting at Second Beach and the Sachuest Beach Family Campground, among a number of others.
