Wolfpit Rd. Repaving Scheduled (Finally!)

Eversource is almost finished with the Wolfpit Rd. gas main installation. With only a few connections to homes along the road remaining, the project is on schedule to be completed by Aug. 15, according to Eversource spokespeople. So what does that mean for the road paving and for the project to be truly finished?

There are already some sewer grates that have been installed and raised surfaces indicate that road repaving will take place soon.  According to Tricia Modifica with Eversource, the state Department of Transportation is responsible for any road resurfacing and paving, and the DOT has notified that repaving will begin the week of Sept. 20.

So while the gas line installation will be done before the start of school, Wilton will have to wait just a little longer until Wolfpit Rd.’s road pits and pot holes are completely filled in and smoothed over.
