CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JUNE 13-19, 2019 CUMBERLAND 7 CUMBERLAND – The rough road will soon be in the rearview mirror. Planned repaving of a 2.25-mile stretch of Diamond Hill Road from Route 295 to Nate Whipple Highway is still expected to take place at the end of June or early July, according to Public Works Director Bob Anderson. State repaving is expected to hap- pen during overnight hours and last less than a week. This is a separate project from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation's ongoing round- about installation project at Route 295 and Chapel Four Corners. The roadway from 295 to Nate Whipple has been a constant source of com- plaints from drivers since it was torn up to allow replacement of water lines last year. Chris Champi, superintendent of the Cumberland Water Department, said all water work and additional RIDOT drainage work associated with the water line project was com- pleted on schedule in the spring. Champi said for a story in April that a notice to proceed with pav- ing will be issued after a required 30-day pavement settling period in late June. Side connections to a new water line under the state road were com- pleted in late April. Cumberland taxpayers are sav- ing about $700,000 on the cost of the project because RIDOT agreed to do paving as part of the water line project on the state road, also known as Route 114.
