Beacon Valley Road work to start in late August


BEACON FALLS — A project to reconstruct Beacon Valley Road from the Beacon Hill Commons condominiums to the Beacon Valley Road Bridge is tentatively scheduled to start in late August, the town announced.

Construction will continue through about Nov. 30 and then resume next spring. Work will be done Monday through Friday, unless permission is granted to work on weekends based on delays due to weather.

The road will be closed to thru traffic during construction. There will be a detour set up on Cross Street through Naugatuck. Officials urged drivers to avoid the area during construction.

The Board of Selectmen awarded the contract for the work to Grasso Companies, a construction company out of Norwalk, for $725,647.
