Project Update

Phase One of the Project is complete and the sidewalk improvements continue to receive positive comments from the community. Phase Two of the project continues but expect construction to slow down through the winter months. Some installation of the storm sewers will continue during the winter. Construction of Phase Two will continue from Appel Lane to Oyster Bay Place and is scheduled to be completed by the end of next year.

Thank you for your patience and please remember to slow down through the work zones to less than 30 miles per hour.
