Tolland's Worst Roads

Check out which town roads rank lowest on the Pavement Condition Index.

Some of Tolland's roads aren't in good shape.

The worst roads in town can be determined using the Pavement Condition Index, which ranks road quality on a scale from 0 to 100. Those scoring above 91 are considered to not need any maintenance work.

According to the rankings compiled by Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. and provided by Public Works Director Clem Langlois, Jr., Tolland's top ten worst roads are:

  1. Curtis Drive (from Old Stafford Road to Robbie Road) PCI: 35, Estimated cost: $26,699
  2. Lorraine Drive (from Slater Road to Curtis Drive) PCI: 35, Estimated Cost: $31,733
  3. Oakwood Lane (from Robbie Road to cul-de-sac) PCI: 36, Estimated Cost: $21,069
  4. Robbie Road (from Lorraine Drive to Old Stafford Road) PCI: 36, Estimated Cost: $63,030
  5. Rolling Meadow Drive (from Crystal Lake Road) PCI: 36, Estimated Cost: $21,893
  6. Doyle Road (from Tolland Stage Road to Crystal Lake Road) PCI: 39, Estimated Cost: $163,215
  7. Hunter Road (565 feet north of Peter Green Road to Old Orchard Way) PCI: 40, Estimated Cost: $75,913
  8. Willow Creek Drive (Crystal Lake Road to cul-de-sac) PCI: 41, Estimated Cost: $44,010
  9. Kozley Road (from Williams Way to Peter Green Road) PCI:41, Estimated Cost: $252,093
  10. Sugar Hill Road (from Johnson Road to Bakos Road) PCI: 41, Estimated Cost: $160,476

Sugar Hill Road is scheduled for repair this spring, and Hunter Road and Willow Creek Drive are slated for 2013.

Langlois explained that the yearly road repair budget focuses on both repairing a few bad roads as well as maintaining the healthier roads, since maintenance can prevent costlier repairs in the future.

More information on the town's roads will be presented at the Capital Budget Hearing on Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at town hall.

A huge pothole in front of our property was filled in by the town.... It snowed four days later & the snow plow removed the entire pothole filling. This past year we had our driveway done & the company successfully filled the pothole. Doesn't the town have the proper equipment to repair our roads?

We live on the Vernon town line on Dockerel. The dramatic deterioration when you hit Tolland should be embarrassing.

Please have the people from Vanasse Hangen Brustin, Inc. open there eyes when they travel from Hunter road to Kozley road (roads on the list) on Peter Green Road. Peter Green Road from Route 30 to Route 74 has been developing into one pothole for the last two years. Using the PCI I'm sure Peter Green would not rate 91 or higher.

Hi John. The complete list of town roads, including Peter Green's ranking, will be available at Thursday's meeting. If you can't make it, be sure to check back here or on the town's website, both of which will likely post all of the ratings.

I feel that the Town of Tolland has done the BEST they could with the money they have. We need to support a town budget that can begin to fix these roads and not get further behind the 8-Ball. The roads in town affect EVERY RESIDENT, Their safety should be the most important thing to consider this budget season!!!
