NEWINGTON, Conn. – Repaving of Veterans Drive is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 22. Work is scheduled to take approximately two weeks with the road closed weekdays from 7am-3pm until the work is completed.
Veterans Drive is the main road on campus off of Willard Avenue next to Newington High School. The road closure is necessary to safely conduct the repaving.
Veterans Drive will reopen at the end of each milling day with a process stone pathway. The contractor will provide signage to navigate users to the alternate entrance for the facility which is located in the rear and goes out to Cedar Street (Route 175) via Alumni Road. The town of Newington will also open up the gate on Alumni Road going out to Willard Avenue.
Repaving is part of the Victory Gardens permanent supportive housing development project.
