The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that pavement preservation work on Routes 2 (Norwich and Bozrah), 2A (Montville), and 693 (Waterford) will begin on August 11, 2009.

The contract was awarded to American Industries, Inc. of Jewett City, CT at a cost of $1,488,870.00 on May 29, 2009 and is scheduled to be completed in September 2009.
