Rain Messes Road Crack Filling Process

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Westport officials are working with residents in the area of High Point Road and Meadow Brook Lane after rain made an oily mess on the roads last week.

Public Works Director Stephen Edwards said workers laid down a “crack seal”—which is a mixture of asphalt and oils—on the road Friday and then placed a stone dust and compost mix on top of it.

“Unfortunately, it doesn’t mix well with water,” he said. “When it rained, it washed away.”

The mixture is supposed to sit on the road for about two days to cure, he said, but an unexpected deluge of rain on Friday morning made the roads an oily mess.

Terex Corp. to Double Space in Westport Move

Westport-based Terex Corp., the world’s third largest manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, will be shifting its corporate operations from 500 Post Road East to the Nyala Farms Corporate Center, according to GlobeSt.com

The firm, a major construction and mining equipment manufacturer, will relocate by year’s end from its current office opposite Westport fire headquarters to the office complex just off I-95 on Greens Farms Road, the Web site reported.

Terex currently occupies 35,000 square feet at 500 Post Road East and will move to 79,598 square feet of space at the 372,207-square-foot, five-building complex at Nyala Farms.

The long-term lease is the largest lease transaction so far this year in Fairfield County and brings the Nyala property to 100 percent occupancy, according to real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield.

A mid-day advisory said hail up to 1.5 inches in diameter, wind gusts to 70 miles per hour, and dangerous lightning are possible in the area.

The advisory of possible severe storms follows Tuesday’s torrential downpour that downed trees and power lines and left more than 300 Westport customers without power.

A brief downpour Friday may have contributed to a one-car accident on Post Road West that damaged a utility pole and knocked out power to about 400 customers.

Harris to Leave Playhouse Early

Alison Harris:resignation takes effect. Contributed photo
Alison Harris, who announced last December that she would resign late this year as executive director of the Westport Country Playhouse, is leaving earlier than planned, the Playhouse said today.

Harris and the board agreed on an earlier date so that the board could reassign her responsibilities while searching for her successor, playhouse officials said.

Harris, who joined the playhouse in 2000, helped raise more than $31 million for a renovation and expansion project. In 2002, the playhouse transferred its first production to Broadway in over 35 years.

The playhouse reopened last year after an extensive renovation that enabled it to be open year-round.

Westporter Receives 27 Months for Gun Possession

A Westport resident received 27 months of jail time today for federal gun possession charges.

Werner William Janer, 44, formerly of Sturges Highway, will have three years of supervised release after his term in a federal jail. The sentence was imposed by U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven.

He pled guilty to one count of gun possession by a convicted felon in May. (See WestportNow May 1, 2006)

According to U.S. Justice Department officials, the owner of Richards of Greenwich contacted police in September 2005 when Janer allegedly purchased three wrist watches using a fraudulent credit card and a false name.

Camp Mahackeno Battles Virus Outbreak

Westport-Weston Family Y Camp Mahackeno counselors are on the look out for a common virus after one camper was diagnosed with it this week.

Camp personnel were alerted by a camper’s family on Tuesday that he was diagnosed with Coxsackie Virus, according to a written statement from the Y.

Camp personnel tentatively identified 100 campers who may have the virus, and 26 cases were confirmed by private physicians, according to the statement.

“While we trust that additional confirmed diagnoses will be limited we cannot assume this will be the case,” officials said in the statement. “Therefore, we will make every effort to minimize the potential for additional diagnoses among our campers.”

Scattered Power Problems Continue

Scattered power problems continued to plague areas of Westport today.

A torrential morning rain brought down more tree limbs and power lines, but most of the latest outages were due to a one-car accident on Post Road West.

A woman driver was transported to Norwalk Hospital by Westport EMS after she crashed her car into a utility pole in front of 212 Post Road West shortly after 9 a.m.

The impact of the crash split the pole, causing it and its wires to hang precariously over the roadway.
