MONROE, CT — The Pepper Street improvement project is resuming full-time construction operations, which includes ongoing utility relocations.
“Residents are urged to use extreme caution in this area or to use alternate routes when possible,” First Selectman Ken Kellogg said in a press release Tuesday.
The first selectman asks commercial traffic to use the northern intersection of Pepper Street and Main Street (Route 25) to access businesses on the northern end of the project, which is known as State Project 84-109.
During construction, drivers may encounter multiple work zones that include single lane, alternating traffic along the route. Work also includes temporary traffic realignment or bypass roadways, temporary gravel roadways, raised structures, utility patching, rough roadway, multiple work zones, and possible delays of up to 10 minutes during traffic stoppages, according to Kellogg.
The project is 90-percent funded through state and federal grants, and is currently scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021.
