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