Shaw Brothers Construction is rebuilding the portion of Queen Street between Gray and Mosher roads in Gorham.

Bob Burns, director of Gorham Public Works Department, said Tuesday the $362,000 project includes improving drainage and ditches and installing driveway culverts. Burns said road pavement would be 22-feet wide and appearance would look similar to other reconstruction projects, like Day Road.

Tree clearing for the street project began at the end of March. Burns expected paving to be completed by June or July, if not sooner.

Danny Shaw, one of the owners of the Gorham-based construction company, said most of the material for the project would come from the company’s new quarry on Mosher Road. The construction company also has town approval for an asphalt plant at the 125-acre site.

Money for the rehab of Queen Street is not included in the town’s budget. Money for the project will come from the $3 million bond Gorham voters approved in 2007 for town road repair.
