Curb, Road Repair in Stratford to Begin 'Once Weather Breaks'

Town will seek reimbursement from FEMA for blizzard-related repairs.

A Stratford resident emailed Patch Tuesday on the topic of widespread curb damage caused by plows and payloaders clearing roads after a blizzard earlier this month.

"Curbs are now damaged or destroyed in my neighborhood," the resident wrote. "Who is going to pay for the repairs? Once all the snow melts people are going to see how much damage there really is."

Marc Dillon, the mayor's chief of staff, said in an email that curb and road repair will start "once the weather breaks and temperatures are above 32 degrees regularly, to allow cement to dry, etc."

According to weather.com, the average low in Stratford is 25 degrees in February, 31 degrees in March and 41 degrees in April.

"As with previous storms," Dillon said, "[the town] will seek reimbursement from FEMA for a myriad of storm costs."

Why wait for the warmer weather? Windsor Avenue was torn up by the Gas Company a few weeks prior to the storm and a soft asphalt was used to fill in the missing "street". Now with the snow, plows and traffic, Windsor Ave has "sink holes" and is a mess to drive down. Wait for spring to see the cars get stuck on the side of the road.
