Blue Moon Friday, July 31

Blue Moon Friday, July 31

The full moon could be seen in it’s full glory this morning at 6:42:54 a.m.

This is the second full moon in July 2015 and therefore it is called a blue moon.

You will see it up there again tonight in the clear sky over the Orange Firemen’s Carnival at the Orange Fairgrounds.

It’s not a super moon, but it sure is round and should be bright all night.

caution-road-work-ahead-temporary-signJust as the town paving project, with road closures and upset residents finally concluded the town announced today that another paving project, this time, by the state, will begin on Monday, Aug. 3.

The CT Dept. of Transportation will be repaving Orange Center Road, all 3.3 miles of it from Route 1 to Derby Turnpike (Route 34) from Aug. 3 through Aug. 24.

The difference, aside from it being a state project rather than a town job, is that the work will be done at night from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. in an attempt to save on the traffic interruptions.

Their job description is: 2″ to be ground off existing pavement and replaced by 2″ of bituminous concrete (a fancy term for asphalt).

Residents who live along Orange Center Road may be disturbed by the overnight noise, but this is how the state has scheduled it to be done.

This is NOT a Town Project, so don’t call the Highway Department with complaints, contact the CTDOT at 203-789-7842.
