As a result of the windstorm on October 7, Enfield had 2,900 residents without power on Wednesday evening. By Thursday morning, Eversource crews have restored power to all residents. On Wednesday night, there were approximately ten different locations in town with downed trees. All known road closures have been checked and are now open. We would like to thank our Department of Public Works staff. They worked throughout the night to clear our Town from the aftermath of the storm. In addition, we would like to thank the Enfield Police Department, which brought in extra officers and Auxiliary personnel to maintain closed roadway scenes and keep our residents safe.
Department of Public Works

The DPW Highway Division staff installed all signage and is currently painting all symbols and line markings. The entire South Road bike line installation was performed in-house. This bike lane is another step in fulfilling the Complete Streets policy as adopted by Town Council in April of 2015.
