NYS DOT Route 12 Pavement Improvement

The New York State Department of Transportation will be conducting pavement improvement on North Broad Street in the City of Norwich and the Towns of Norwich and North Norwich during the summer construction season. The roadway surface will be milled and paved, which means up to two inches of the existing pavement will be removed and replaced with new asphalt. Curb ramps will be repaired to comply with ADA standards where needed. Guiderail and guidance indicator signs will be replaced as needed.

Construction will occur during the day and will include temporary single lane closures. Flaggers will direct alternating one-way traffic. Construction will be staggered to mill and pave approximately one-mile sections of roadway within two- to three-day intervals. Access to residences, businesses, and other facilities along the roadway system will be maintained during construction.
