DERRY — The next phase of the town’s Route 28 water/sewer improvement plan is on track.
That, according to acting town administrator Larry Boudreau, is part of the town’s overall vision to extend those utilities down to the Ryan’s Hill area to help boost economic development.
The project also falls within the town’s 2010 Master Plan goals.
Last fall, town crews did work to construct a new bridge and install water, sewer and drainage utilities on Rockingham Road between Bradford Street and Winter Hill Road.
That portion of the work cost $812,000.
The next phase includes extending water and sewer lines from Winter Hill down to Webster’s Corner; Webster’s Corner to Berry Road; and Bypass 28 between Webster’s Corner and Humphrey Road.
A water booster station is also included in the plan to help upgrade water pressure and supply.
The total project will fall under the $5 million price tag for all work that was approved by town officials, Budreau said.
The low bid for the work came from American Excavating, Budreau said. He said work is planned for later in May running through November, then to resume again in April 2015.
The project should be completed by July 2015.
