East Windsor Rd update!  Construction on East Windsor Rd from North Rd to the Windsor town line is set to begin by the last week of August or the first week of September.  All State Materials Group will begin full depth reclaiming of the road surface along with adding 2,000 ton of 1.5” dense grade and liquid calcium / mile to the gravel base. Reclaiming is expected to last up to 2 weeks.  Once the reclaiming and reshaping of the road is completed, LB Corporation will start paving the road.  First with 2.5” of a binder layer and followed by 1.5” of a top course layer.  All intersections with gravel roads will be paved and all driveways will have new black top aprons installed.  In addition to the paving there will be ¾” dense grade added to the entire length of the road on the shoulders.  Paving is expected to last 2 to 3 weeks.  PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR DELAYS WHILE COMMUTING THROUGH THE AREA DURING CONSTRUCTION!
 On July 20, 2022 I received an email from MassDOT in regards to the Municipal Pavement Program.  This program was set up to address “town maintained” state numbered routes.  I’m excited to share with the town that MassDOT has selected State Route 143 from mile marker 2.5 to 6.98 (Hinsdale town line to Worthington town line) for improvements during the 2023 Fiscal year program.  We don’t know the exact details of the project as of yet, but I will keep everyone informed as we find out more.  The Hinsdale section has also been selected for improvements as well.
