DARIEN — Town roads will undergo a series of improvements through the end of the month.
The Department of Public Works plans to tackle 21 different locations in town from Aug. 9 through Aug. 25, weather permitting.
“In general, we have a 20-year repaving schedule, with some modifications. Some roads might move up in the 20-year schedule if there’s been a lot of work in the roadways,” First Selectman Jayme Stevenson said.
According to the DPW, roads being worked on will have raised structures. The town asks drivers to avoid the roads when possible or that extra caution be taken if they must be traveled. Driveway access, too, may be limited during construction, though no single driveway should be blocked for more than an hour at a time.
Work will be done on roads in various parts of town, with a concentration of streets around Woodland Park on the western side of town.
“There are a number of roadways sort of in the Abbey, Intervale, Chester, Stanley and Holmes area,” Stevenson said. “But other than that, it’s kind of a grab bag.”
