Notice to East Nashua Road Residents

April 26, 2017
To the residents and property owners on East Nashua Road:

This letter is to inform you of upcoming work to be done by the Highway Department on this road. This will be a road reconstruction project as done last year further down the road. This year we will be working from Bedros Street to Londonderry Road to complete the project. Several items will need to be addressed prior to the actual start of roadwork.
Due to the intended roadwork several trees will need to be removed while others will need to be limbed and brush will need to be removed along the shoulder area. This is necessary to provide safe clearance around the utility lines, operating room for heavy equipment and adequate sight distance at driveways and intersections for daily traffic upon completion of the work. Again the town highway department will be marking these trees as necessary and will be happy to meet with any of you to further discuss this and or any other concerns you may have in regards to this project.

Actual roadwork will consist of removing stumps and brush, removal of existing pavements, and unsuitable materials from the roadbed. Then any necessary drainage work will be done, shoulders will be shaped as needed and new gravels will be put in place and compacted. Binder pavement will be installed and driveways and intersections will be tied in to the new pavements. Finish pavement will then be completed and shoulders will be graveled or loamed and seeded as necessary to finish the work.

As we spoke to earlier there are several items to address to get this project underway and so we would rather take a little more time in the beginning to get everyone in agreement and have a better job upon completion. We are hopeful we can get going sometime in late May or early June and have the project complete within eight to ten weeks depending on weather and scheduling with different subcontractors. This may lead to some traffic delays during the working hours and we ask for your cooperation and patience with those working on the project. We will make every effort to cause as little disturbance as possible but with roadwork things don’t always go as fast or as well as everyone would like. Hopefully once the work is complete it will be a vast improvement to the present conditions and all will be happy and forgive us for the mess during the ongoing roadwork. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter and as always we look forward to talking with you and addressing any concerns or answering your questions in general about this project.

Notice of Upcoming Road Work

April 26, 2017

To Whom It May Concern:

Please be advised of upcoming paving work to begin in late May or early June on Blossom Road starting at Nashua Road and ending at Park Street, all of Tulley Street, all of Fordway Extension to the Derry town line, all of Balmorra Road, and all of Governor Dinsmore Road to the left of Searles Road. The work will consist of reclaiming the existing pavements, regrading the roadbed, compacting the materials, adjusting basins as necessary and then two layers of new asphalt put in place. All driveways will be adjusted to meet the new pavements as needed and shoulders will be either graveled or loamed and hydro seeded to complete the work. There may also be some brush and or tree work done as needed to accommodate the equipment, improve site distance and remove low hanging limbs. Equipment may also be left overnight on the shoulders of the road and hopefully within the Right of Way.

There will be delays as the work progresses of maybe a few minutes due to equipment and men in the road but there will be one lane open for travel at all times possible. We ask that you please be cautious of the workers and watch for the flaggers as they try to direct the traffic through the work areas.

If you have any questions or concerns prior to the start of or during the work phase please call the highway department at 603-216-5676. Thank you for your time and considerations.

2017 Adopt-A-Spot Information

We would like to invite you to participate in the 2017 Adopt-A-Spot Program.  This Program provides businesses, volunteer groups, non-profit organizations and residents of the community, an opportunity to help improve designated areas of Town that could benefit from some love, care and attention.

We have “clean-up” spots and “garden” spots available for you to adopt and maintain through the month of September. 

For those who want to support the Program and help keep Windham beautiful but just can’t commit the time to do the work yourself, we have you covered.  You can “adopt” a spot for a one-day clean-up during the month of June.

We are accepting applications for our 2017 Adopt-A-Spot Program now through June 1st.

This is a great way for your business or non-profit organization to become involved in the community, help improve the overall physical appearance of the town, and is something we can all take pride in!

To see the spots available for adoption or for more information about the Program, please contact Cheryl Haas, Recreation Coordinator, at 603-965-1208 or chaas@windhamnh.gov.

The 2017 Adopt-A-Spot Program would not be possible without the generous support of many local Windham businesses and participants.  Thank you!
