CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | AUGUST 8-14, 2019 LINCOLN 21 Paving Co., this year's low bidder, began "reclaiming" Colonial Drive (from Garden Drive to Sunview Street) and Garden Drive west of Grove Street. Reclaiming the road includes pul- verizing and blending the existing roadway to create a more stable base for the fresh pavement, the method Lincoln uses when roadways are in particularly rough shape, accord- ing to Town Engineer Leslie Quish. Other streets with less extensive dam- age will undergo a "mill and over- lay," where the top level of asphalt is ground down and a new top coat is laid. This week, crews were working in the neighborhood behind Saylesville Elementary School on several streets including Musket Road, Surrey Lane, Wagon Wheel Lane and Iron Forge Road off Carriage Drive. Certain drainage work has been extended up Progress Street at the end of Musket Road, where Quish said she hopes to capture some water that had been causing icy conditions this winter. Improvements are also planned for nearby Lakeview Avenue off Cobble Hill Road, as well as Olney Avenue and 1st Street. From there, Quish expects the roadwork to shift to a neighborhood off Albion Road, which will include Spring Green Road, Brookside Drive, Meadowbrook Road, Knollwood Drive and two cul-de-sacs: Foxwood Drive and Glenview Drive. Lastly, Quish said the town will mill and overlay part of Reservoir Avenue and abutting Chestnut Avenue. The contract gives the company 120 days to complete the work across town.
