Anyone who has visited the Westport Weston Family Y — or zoomed past Exit 41 on the Merritt Parkway — has seen the activity.
Every few days — because you don’t expect highway work to happen consistently — earth movers rumble to life.
They take mounds of dirt, and shift them from here to there. They do the same with boulders. They dig up some spots, flatten others. They look like they’re doing something.
But that sorry stretch of land, hemmed in by the road on one side and a forlorn fence on the other, also always looks the same. What exactly has been done there over the past few months?
Besides making the northbound entrance one of the scariest pieces of roadway in the history of transportation?
There was plenty of action this afternoon and evening in Saugatuck.
A sewage pipe break half a mile north of the treatment plant closed Westport’s beaches — and Sherwood Island State Park — as a precaution.
State Representative Jonathan Steinberg says the break is below 2 big well fields upstream, so exposure is limited.
Town employees, Aquarion workers and others from a variety of government agencies and private companies are on the job.
