Downtown Crosswalk

The Towns contractor will be replacing the bricks in 23 crosswalks and associated sidewalk repairs in the Downtown area starting on Thursday, June 1st. The project should be complete by early fall. Please note that the schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.

Crosswalks will be completed on the side streets first, starting with Punchard on Thursday, June 1st. Work will then continue down Main St towards Elm Square.
