Route 4 drain, paving project nears completion
SHARON — Although it may have seemed to some like more than a year since work began, the state Department of Transportation (DOT) drainage and paving project on Route 4 is now close to completion.
The whole project stretched from Route 7 west to Old Town Road, a distance of 3.9 miles at a total cost of $1.6 million, as reported on Tuesday, July 19, by Josh Morgan, DOT Communications Manager.
The project that began in the fall of 2021 included reconfiguring drainage and installing new storm drains, leveling the roadway and, finally, paving, Morgan said.
Painting of the lines is next, with the yellow centerline expected to be done soon, weather dependent, followed by the white right-hand edge lines to be added in the next few weeks, Morgan said.
