Project Updates, Info and pictures. 
Route 7, Segment 6 Project-
Even BETTER Brandon  #8
Date: 9/12/17

As we progress with construction on the Even BETTER Brandon-Segment 6 project, we encourage you to continue to access information and photos of the project here at the Chamber of Commerce newsletter. We are confident that the process will continue to be informative and timely, as our contacts will continue to be Dubois & King engineering, working in concert with the town of Brandon and local Rutland based contractor Casella Construction. Jeff Chase, Casella's Project Manager, will be providing weekly narratives of work done, and work scheduled for the upcoming weeks. So this will be a valuable resource for all in the community and surrounding areas.
We will also have a page dedicated to the project at brandonbuilds.com. As we add more content to the page it will be another great resource for information concerning many aspects of the project.

PROJECT: Brandon NH 019-3 (496)
DATE: Week of September 10th
This past week we continued with drainage install on Rossiter St and started on Carver St. This Tuesday we will install the large drainage structure at the intersection of Carver and Rossiter St, and then head down Carver St with drainage to Central Park.  On Wednesday, September 13 th we will be shutting down Carver St North (Carver between Union and Rt 7) in preparation for 12" water main install.   Carver St North will be opened back up for weekend traffic.   All Carver St North traffic will be detours to Union St (south side of Center Park).
Upcoming work in the next two weeks:
TRAFFIC DELAYS: Our work this week will be focused on Rossiter Street and Carver. We will be closing the road to thru traffic at times during the week. Construction equipment will be traveling on Route 7 and Carver Street, servicing the pipe crew on Rossiter. Please be aware the backfilled trench surfaces on Rossiter St will be gravel. Take care driving over the backfill trenches. We are coordinating with the School System on bus pickups and drops, to avoid conflict with our construction progress.   The School System will be coordinating with the Students and their families.
This week as we work north up Carver St towards Union St we will be impacting the Bank Building and their parking. We will coordinate as we approach the intersection of Union and Carver.  
On Wednesday we will be closing Carver St North. See the attached map for closure details and detour route. Please note on the map that crosswalks will be relocated temporarily. Will we provide signage directing pedestrians to temporary cross walks.
DRAINAGE SYSTEM: We will have a pipe install crew (30 ton excavator, roller, loader, and dump trucks) on Carver working on installing 30" drain pipe and precast manholes and catch basins this week. At the corner of Carver and Rossiter there is a large 8' diameter precast manhole that needs to be installed. The installation of this structure is anticipated for Tuesdayday, September 12 and will be disruptive to traffic on both Carver and Rossiter St.
WATER SYSTEM: A water pipe install crew (30 ton excavator, roller, loader, and dump trucks) will be starting on Monday, September 18th on Carver St North. This crew will focus on installing the new 12" and 16" water mains in and around Central Park.  
DELVERIES: Water pipe is arriving this week.
GENERALL NOTES: Please be aware there are many buried existing utilities. Sometimes we have to disrupt these utilities and the service they provide to you. In those instances, we make every effort to notify you ahead of time and make every effort to make the disruption as short as possible.
In September we are adding crews to build out the new utilities, which will be causing increase disruption in and around Central Park area.
Project Overview:
PROJECT LOCATION:   Segment 6 project limits start south on Route 7 at the Fire Station and ends just north of the Shell Station on Route 7, the project also includes work on portions of Park St, Conant Sq, Rossiter, Union, Carver, and Grove St.
