We've just been notified that the contractor plans on paving the top layer of asphalt in this project zone as of tomorrow (September nth).  Sections of the road will have limited access to vehicles during this time.

This morning the contractor is finishing up final grading of the stone base material.  The contractor plans on installing the binder layer (bottom asphalt layer) tomorrow (Saturday, September the) at 7:00 am.  We're still waiting on an updated schedule from the concrete contractor for the curb and gutter replacements.  After all the concrete work is complete a date will be set for the top layer of asphalt to be installed. 

The plan was to begin installing the binder coat (bottom asphalt layer) this week on both Cedar and Northridge.  However after some inspections, New London Utilities found some unexpected issues with some of the water valves that are located in the street.  New London Utilities is making repairs to these water valves now, instead of having to open a new street in a few years for these repairs.  The Utilities crew should have these repairs done by the end of this week, so paving the first layer of asphalt on both Cedar and Northridge is now expected to take place early next week.

We have just been notified from the contractor of an updated schedule for the Cedar Street/Northridge Drive street improvement project (weather pending):

  • Wednesday, August 21st the contractor will mill and pulverize the streets in the project zone.  They will take the rest of the week to adjust manhole covers and perform grading of the stone/base material.
  • Monday, August 26th the contractor will pave the lower level of asphalt in the project zone.
  • In the last week in August and the first week in September a concrete contractor will perform spot curb and gutter repair along with some driveway apron improvements.
  • After the concrete work is done, the asphalt contractor will come back and pave the top layer of asphalt in the project zone.


The City of New London will be completing utility and street improvements on Cedar Street and Northridge Drive starting in July of 2019.  The project includes spot repair of some sanitary and storm sewer pipes, spot repair of curb and gutter, replacement of driveway aprons and resurfacing of the street.  Utility and concrete spot repair is anticipated to begin the week of July 29th (weather and other factors permitting).  Shortly after, street asphalt will be pulverized and eventually repaved.  Property owners in this work zone will be notified in advance of driveway apron replacement so they can remove their vehicles.  It is anticipated that these driveway aprons will need about 7 days to fully cure before residents can drive on them again.
