CLARENDON – Route 237 is getting repaved in Clarendon, from the Clarendon corners to the Holley village line.

Don Welch took these photos on Wednesday of Highway Rehab Corp., repaving the road. Their machines heat the road surface with gas torches, then dig up the hot asphalt, mix in some oil, and lay it back down, Welch said.

It takes 3 machines to do one lane of the road. A vibratory roller follows the paving trucks and leaves the recycled surface smooth as new. A top layer of asphalt will be added after they’re done, Welch said.
