GILFORD —Due to a heavy rain event on Monday, July 22 and into Tuesday, July 23,a major culvert that crosses Cumberland Road at the Route 11 end was damaged and consequently is not allowing water to pass through. The town is utilizing this years' road contractor, Wolcott Construction of Gilmanton and Busby Construction of Atkinson to facilitate repairs.
As of today, the road is closed to traffic and signage is in place to help direct the public around this area safely. The public can follow the detour signs travelling through Gunstock Acres, to and from Route 11.
It is expected that repairs will take approximately two weeks to complete before the road is again open to traffic. Drivers are asked to observe due caution when travelling in this area due to construction equipment in and around the job site.
Call Gilford Public Works at 527-4778 with any questions or concerns, or visit the Town's website to follow the project's progress.
