JAY — The town has spent about $478,000 on road work this year.

There are 68 miles of roads in Jay that are the town’s responsibility, Road Committee Chairman Tom Goding said Tuesday.

That does not include state or federal roads, he said.

Goding, a selectman, gave fellow selectmen an update on roadwork at Monday night’s selectmen’s meeting, Town Manager Ruth Cushman said Tuesday.

Voters raised $450,000 for the capital paving account in June for 2012-13. The town also gets money from the state for road improvements.

The work done included reclaiming the asphalt pavement on all of Pleasant Drive and over half of Warren Hill Road and repaving it with a 2-inch base, according to Goding’s list.


A section of Beedy Road was rebuilt and the entire road repaved.

Sections of Riverview and Lavoie streets were rebuilt, including having new sewer and water lines installed, and sections of them were repaved.

Allen Street was repaved and shimmed. Free Street was rebuilt, including new sewer and water lines, and repaved.

Two-hundred tons of cold mix was graded onto Spruce Mountain Road. A section of Masterman Road was rebuilt and a reclaim surface was applied.

Work tentatively proposed in 2013, if there is enough money left and the budget is approved, is to put a finish surface on Skyline, Belmont, Summit, Chickadee, Forest Circle, Barker, Lavoie, Riverview and Warren roads, Goding said.

Other work that could be done are shimming and surfacing part of Oak Street, all of Knoll Circle, Evergreen, Bryant and Pinewood Road. Hidden Circle and White Avenue could also be rebuilt and repaved.

Any remaining money would be used to continue rehabilitation of the East Jay Road.
