Moultonborough Neck Pathway Repairs Begin May 6

MOULTONBOROUGH — With state permits in hand the long awaited repairs to Phase 2 of the Moultonborough Neck Road Pathway will begin, weather permitting, on May 6.
The project will consist of the removal of the existing pathway, repairs to the subgrade as needed and then the paving of an extended shoulder approximately 8 feet in width. Highway markings and seasonal -delineation markers will be used to clearly identify the roadway and pathway lanes.
The roadwork will take place on Mondays through Fridays and the hours of 7 a.m. through 4 p.m. It is
expected to wrap up on or about May 17. During the work, which will be on both sides of the roads,
flaggers will be in use to control one-way traffic in the work zones. Users of the roadway are asked to plan
for short delays and be aware of construction equipment.
This first set of repairs is expected to address continuing maintenance problems caused by automotive traffic spinning on the gravel median intended to serve as a separation of the roadway and the pathway. Heavy rains have then washed this loosened gravel across the pathway as well.
The work for this year will extend about along Moultonbrough Neck Road 850 feet south of Highway Garage Road toward Kona Farm Road. The work is being carried out at a cost of approximately $75,000 by Town work crews and local contractors who responded to the town's annual Call for Contractor's program. Future work will be depend upon future Town Meeting appropriations.
