Streetscape project to come out of hibernation

BEACON FALLS — The Naugatuck River didn’t freeze this winter, but construction on the Beacon Falls streetscape project did.

Warm weather returning, though, means work is set to resume soon on the downtown greenway.

The project was originally slated to be finished in December but a number of issues, including guardrail excavation, draining issues, and contamination removal, ran construction past deadline and forced its winter hibernation.

First Selectman Gerry Smith said that work should begin again in early April with a target completion date of May 15, but it could stretch as long as the end of May.
