Road Damage and Road Closures

Good Morning!

I hope this update finds all Residents, Family members and Friends...safe, healthy and comforted, knowing that your Town Selectmen, Road Agent, Highway Crew, and Fire Dept. Chief and Volunteers, have been working diligently for you.

The Severe weather storm forecast on 7/1/17 left some terrible damage and road closures in Wentworth, and roadways leading to the surrounding Towns.  The list is as follows:
1. Ellsworth Hill Rd.
2. Nichols Hill Rd.
3. Atwell Hill Rd.
4. Cape Moonshine Rd.
5. Beech Hill Rd.
6. parts of Rte. 25A

The Town of Wentworth is so lucky to have such a great community of people out there willing to help and work together.  We ask that if you are willing, to please contact The Selectmen, Fire Chief and/or the Road Agent.

Remember, these men are tired and some have been up all night keeping watch. If you see them out there...please be sure to Thank them and show them some appreciation.  (Just a little tidbit)  I bet they wouldn't squawk about some baked goods, homemade cooking or something to drink.  These are some things that help more than you'll ever know, and are appreciated beyond words.

At this time, 11:00 am on 7/2/17 the crews are trying to piece together, assess , inspect, and fix the major problems.  We ask that you remain patient while this process and the major priorities are being dealt with. 

Several equipment operators, excavators, front loaders, dump trucks, gravel, stone, staymat, supplies and etc. are coming in from other Towns, including help from our own Residents and local businesses.  That's what communities are all about.
  
If your home, property, or roadways have been damaged, we ask that you get the necessary info together, along with many pictures to support this, we ask you get them to the Administration Office, and Select Board to assist and review.

Remember: if you have an emergency, Please contact 911.  DO NOT CROSS FAST MOVING WATERS, or try to take any canoe, kayak, or floatation device into the waters.  These currents have a lot of force and will pull you under.  Safety First...also, stay away from the banks or edges of roadways that have washed out.  There could be more Dangers of  FLASH FLOODING.

Further information will be updated as time allows.
 
Thank you again,

Arlene J. Patten
Administrative Assistant
for the Select Board
