Route 179 Repaving

The CT Department of Transportation has started work on this year's project to resurface Route 179 from the intersection with Route 219 south to the intersection with Route 309 in Canton.  They plan to fully reclaim the area from the northern intersection down to just past the Barkhamsted East Firehouse, and then will do a mill and overlay the remainder of the distance to the intersection with 309. 

Similar to last year, the section being reclaimed may be rough and have sharp rocks uncovered, which can cause flat tires. If you do not live on that stretch of road, you can avoid it by using Hillcrest Drive, and then you will only have to use 179 through the section being milled, which is much less hazardous to your vehicle.

DOT is currently working on catch basin repairs and replacements, but the re-paving probably won't start until July.  If anything changes, we will keep you informed.

Connecticut Open House Day

 

Squires’ Tavern in Peoples Forest on East River Road, Pleasant Valley, the home of the Barkhamsted Historical Society, will be participating in the Connecticut Open House Day on Saturday, June 10th.  This event, sponsored by the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, is held each year at historic sites, art galleries, museums and many other landmarks throughout Connecticut. The Commission states that “Connecticut Open House Day serves as a fun way for Nutmeggers to discover – or rediscover – all that is accessible within our state. It is a way for Connecticut residents to visit the treasures in their own backyard.”

As a participant, Squire’s Tavern will welcome visitors from 1:00 to 4:00.  The admission is free and refreshments will be served.  Stop in and see what our special program will be this year!  The Barkhamsted Historical Society has been very busy restoring this historic site and the Tavern has much to offer including exhibits of local history.
