Work is expected to begin soon on the repair of damaged culverts that channel Mongo Brook under Concord Road.
The Bedford Select Board on Monday approved a $127,101.54 contract with C.L.H.& Sons, Inc., of Auburn, ME for the work. The company has featured a culvert rehabilitation services division for more than 20 years.
The contractor will rehabilitate the two 24-inch culverts by inserting a high-density plastic liner, which means at least one lane of the street is expected to remain open during construction.
“We have had plates and cones there for some time,” Public Works Department Director David Manugian told the board at its meeting on Monday. He added that the eastbound lane of Concord Road has sunk because of the deterioration of the culverts underneath, and the repairing of the road and adjacent sidewalk is part of the contract.
Mongo Brook drains the primeval White Cedar Swamp southerly to Elm Brook.
Manugian pointed out that questions about this or any local road projects should be addressed to the new address: [email protected].
