Despite unusually wet weather, work is progressing on the Grover Hills road project. The Moriah highway department is tearing up Champlain Drive and Federal Street in Grover Hills and rebuilding the roadways.
continued “We just have to do it,” Wilson said. “The roads were terrible, especially the frost heaves in the spring. All the cuts and cracks in the concrete over the years made for a real problem.”
Using town material and labor the project will cost Moriah about $150,000.
“It’s a heavily populated area and those people pay taxes like everyone else,” Scozzafava said of Grover Hills. “They’ve put up with these roads for years. They deserve decent roads.”
Because the Grover Hills project is a priority, Wilson is asking other Moriah residents to be patient.
“We still have a lot of work to do in the rest of the town,” he said. “We have roadside maintenance, sidewalks, brush clearing, a lot to do. We’ll get to all of it as best we can.”
