Important Notice - Temporary Closure of Ratlum Road

As part of funding received from a State grant, the Town will be replacing the bridge culvert by the beaver pond at the intersection of Route 219 and Ratlum Road.  Unfortunately, this repair requires that Ratlum Road be closed from November 19 through November 26 to allow for removal of the old culvert and installation of the new culvert, and for preparation of the road for repaving.  The contractor is hopeful that they will only need to close the road for that 1-week period.

The schools and local emergency personnel (fire and ambulance) have been notified and alternate routes will be planned to minimize the impact to the residents of the Ratlum Road area.  The schools will be contacting parents to let them know of any temporary changes to bus schedules.

Please call Town Hall if you have any questions (860-379-8285) or email dstein@barkhamsted.us
