This story has been updated since it first appeared.

Middle Road reopened Tuesday evening  after being closed for more than 24 hours between South County Trail and Stone Ridge Drive. The closure was for the long-awaited installation of a culvert under Middle Road at Frybrook Drive.

WA Excavation started the project Monday, closing the road at around 5 p.m. and working through the night.

Middle Road being excavated Tuesday to make way for the concrete culvert at Frybrook Drive.

The culvert is the final piece of work to be done on the Frybrook condominium development largely completed in 2008. The Town Council granted Frybrook developer Tom Primeau a number of deferrals – Primeau cited the poor economy as his reason for the delay – but finally required him to complete the culvert as a stipulation for getting a permit to continue another development on Middle Road, just a quarter mile to the east of South County Trail.

      Sorry about the misinformation! When I talked to the police last night, they told me it was open … didn’t realize they would need to close it again today.
