Town of Newfields Highway Department

2016 Report


In 2016, the Highway Department replaced all drainage culverts, re-built road surface and placed a 2-inch binder coat of asphalt on Dixon Ave.  We also replaced 100 foot section of brick pipe from the Railroad tracks to the Town Landing.  The original pipe was installed in the early 1880’s and failed due to heavy rains in October 2016.    

The paving schedule for 2017 is to surface coat 1,100 feet of Halls Mill Road from Route 87 to the old railroad bed.  Additionally, we plan to surface coat Dixon Ave.   

A town wide parking ban goes into effect during storms that produce 2” or more of snow.  There will be no long term parking allowed on the streets.  This includes daytime hours. 

I would like to thank the residents for adhering to the winter parking ban and keeping the streets clear for snow removal.  It would be helpful, as well, not to put out trash on Tuesday evenings of forecasted snow.
