KITTERY, Maine — Several town roads will begin paving repairs over the next month, with more roads to be repaired in the spring.

South Eliot Road from Bayview Lane to the Eliot town line was closed from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday as paving contractors readied the road for reclaiming, basing and shimming work.

Once that is completed, Sterling Road and Laurel Lane will receive asphalt overlays, while Crockett Neck Road, Cutts Road and Betty Welch Road will all be shimmed. Those roads are expected to be completed by Nov. 15, according to Norman Albert, commissioner of the Department of Public Works.

Several other town roads will receive top-coat paving in the spring, with Tilton Avenue, Old Ferry Lane, Bowen Road, Pepperrell Road to the York town Line, Remicks Lane, South Eliot Road, Crockett Neck Road, Cutts Road and Betty Welch Road all receiving new top coats in the spring.

These road improvement projects are separate from the $1.3 million bond voters approved in June – with which roads will be repaired with that bond still being determined.
