Resurfacing of portion of Rte. 132 in Sanbornton coming up

To The Daily Sun,

I am taking this opportunity to provide important information regarding the summer road resurfacing project to occur in Sanbornton beginning at Gaza Corner along Route 132 North to Hermit Woods Road. After recently speaking with officials from the State Department of Transportation, I would like to provide all residents who live and travel along this route a progress update.

The first phase of the road improvements project was completed in May into June, when approximately 20 culvert drainage pipes were replaced along the Route 132 roadway in Sanbornton.

Beginning in July into August, Phase II and Phase III will take place. This involves a resurfacing using a newly developed road surface repair process; a cold surface treatment (Phase II) followed by a final hot surface asphalt treatment (Phase III).

Sign notifications are scheduled to be placed along the beginning and end of the route. This will serve as an alert to all travelers who may be driving in this area during July and August. I hope this update will provide reassurance to all in the area that the project is online and scheduled to be completed during the summer of 2015.

State Rep. Brian S. Gallagher

We are proud of all involved with the Huot Technical Center

To The Daily Sun,

Congratulations to everyone involved with the Huot Career and Technical Center. That was a very interesting article in the June 16 issue of The Laconia Daily Sun. I was really impressed with the students recognized at the May 27 celebration of achievement ceremony.

Also, I am very pleased to report that 39 of the college-bound students received awards through the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation to help them further their scholastic and career goals. We are proud of all of you at Huot Tech — students, administrators and teachers. Keep up the good work.

Joan Cormier, Executive Director
