Upcoming Road Work Notice


Partridge Lane Culvert Rehabilitation

Sligo Road Roadway & Drainage Repairs

August 24 – October 29

The Select Board announces the commencement of the above two projects by JTI Site Development, Inc (Lebanon, Maine).  At the end of the project we will have

  • rehabilitated the Partridge Lane culvert such that it no longer poses an environmental risk of failing and causing the failure of the water and sewer pipes above it
  • repaired the Sligo Road site such that it will reopen as a one-lane road across the culvert

The engineering design of both projects was completed by Hoyle Tanner and Associates.  Public hearings were held on May 14, 2015 and July 2, 2015 to review both projects.  JTI was awarded the contract after a public bid process.

Forestry Walk in Scoutland

Over 80 acres of town-owned forest along the Salmon Falls River, Scoutland is conserved by the Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire (SELT) and is popular with hikers and nature-lovers of all types. Participants will learn about the forest structure and the natural history of this beautiful place, as well as the sustainable forestry work that is planned for the property.

The walk will leave from the Colonel Paul Wentworth House on Water Street in Rollinsford, and will return for light refreshments afterwards.
