Chatterton Way Culvert Replacement

The Town of Hamden planning on conducting repairs to the culvert which carries Jepp Brook under Chatterton Way. The Town is completing the design process and beginning the permitting process. The proposed work is to structurally line the existing culvert in place. By lining the culvert, the road will not have to be closed and the disruption to the road and brook will be minimized. Additional information as well as a copy of the proposed plans will be posted on the Town website under the Engineering Department at www.hamden.com\Engineering\.

The Town is applying for a wetlands permit at the April 3, 2019 meeting with an anticipated discussion at the May 1, 2019 meeting.

The Town is also having a public informational meeting on April 8, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. in the third floor Conference Room, at the Government Center, 2750 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden.  The meeting should take about a half hour to present the project and answer any questions.  If you cannot make the meeting, please feel free to contact the Engineering Department during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Government Center, or via phone at 203-287-7040, or via email at maustin@hamden.com.

Just before construction starts, you can expect to see white paint markings and other color pavement markings where the existing culvert is located.  This will not occur until the construction phase which is some months away. 

The road will be open for local traffic and emergency vehicles at all times; however significant delays can be anticipated for local traffic.  One lane will be needed for the construction equipment during the work day but the road will remain open to traffic. There will be construction equipment and workers in the roadway.  Please use caution and leave the crews plenty of work space.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to the culvert being repaired.

We hope you have just a moment or two to answer just a few quick multiple choice question.  No personal information will be collected.
