Old Sandwich Road expected to get a new grade

A Department of Public Works crew was scheduled to return to Old Sandwich Road Friday to finish what was started five years ago. That’s what Assistant DPW Director Dennis Westgate told the Roads Advisory Committee, and several residents of the historic road, at a Thursday night meeting. Five years ago, under the direction of former DPW head George Crombie, a 450-foot long section of the gravel road was covered in what Westgate described as a “dense grade material.” That project was a test to see if there was a way to make it more manageable without having to actually pave it.
