Since the beginning of the history of this country, we have been protected by those willing to fight and die for us. Our freedoms are secured by the blood of patriots, those who gave all for us. This weekend, we honor their sacrifice and those they left behind. There are no adequate words. ~ Steve
Dear Elected Officials for Charlestown, Walpole, and Claremont:
Last week the final cross pipe and drainage blanket were installed. The fine grading was completed over the weekend. (Attached photo 5/21.) And we are so pleased to tell you that Casella is paving today! (Attached photo 5/23.)
Priority has been placed on opening two lanes for the holiday weekend, requiring that cleanup work be performed during the next week or two. The guardrail is expected to be installed on Thursday and is necessary to open the roadway on Friday, May 27, 2022.
After the holiday weekend, the roadway will be reduced to one lane or closed at times with traffic control to allow for site cleanup and the removal of materials.
With thanks for your cooperative spirit during the Charlestown Route 12 repairs,
Things are happening quickly at the Charlestown Route 12 site.
By the end of last week, the stone slope stabilization and drainage were nearly complete. The attached photos show the crushed stone and geotextile being placed. (Attached photos from May 10, #22b and May 13 #22a and 22b.) These materials will support the pavement. They will also support the ditch work that was done between the roadway and the railroad. On Friday Casella set the last drainage structure. (See attached photo 5-13-22d D3.) And today a cross pipe is being installed.
Casella is on track to pave the week of May 23, 2022, with the road open for Memorial Day.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
