State plans to repave road next summer

LIVERMORE FALLS – The section of Park Street that is undergoing sewer and water line replacement construction is scheduled to be repaved by the state next summer.

The contractor has to repave all of the sections it has dug up during the road construction, Maine Department of Transportation Regional Engineer Mark Hume said Thursday.

The state does maintenance paving on the road, which is also Route 133, every seven years, and repaving is scheduled for summer 2008, Hume said.

Concerns were raised Monday night at a selectmen’s meeting over the bumpy condition of the road, residents’ patience running out, and when DOT will repave that section that runs from the intersection of Route 17 to just past the fire station.

Hume said the timing is right because after the contractor does its trench-paving, it will give those sections a year to settle, then DOT will come in to repave it and smooth it out.
