Guernseytown Road is currently being reconstructed utilizing a 100% State Grant.

Work Starting Next Week

Additional drainage work will be placed under Guernseytown Road from Monday February 12th to Wednesday February 14th, 2024.  A portion of the road will be one lane with traffic control officers to alternate the traffic.  You may also seek alternate routes to avoid this area.

Work Starting at the End of February 2024

To enhance the environmental quality of Watertown Streams and Rivers a large Hydrodynamic Separator is scheduled to be installed on this project.   To install this on Guernseytown Road it is anticipated that the road will be closed from Thursday February 29th, 2024, until March 28th, 2024.

All residents will have access to their homes.  The specific location of the road closure is as follows; closed north of West Road at 629 Guernseytown and south of Crestview Dr at 641 Guernseytown Road.  Residents 629 and below will need to go south to get to Route 6 and residents 641 and above will need to utilize Platt Road to get to Route 6. 

It is anticipated that this work will require blasting of ledge rock and a specialized large manhole that will need to be installed with a crane at this location. 

 

Thank you for your understanding.
