UPDATE: The long awaited and worked for sidewalk project has started today and is expected to take 2 months to complete. Please drive cautiously entering town on 31 in the construction area. We do not want any one hurt during this project.
Also our largest of the three Storm shelters started construction last week on Trafford Road. This facility will have full facilities and will be able to shelter 350 people in a storm. It is being built to withstand 250mph winds and also will double as a second community center for events with a larger capacity. Pictures on both projects to follow soon.
Our Sidewalk project that has been worked hard to get by our council and Mayor for quite a long time is about to become a reality! This week pipe was delivered and the contractors have boots on the ground busily working laying it out and preparing. The contractors state that they should be able to finish the project in just two months if the weather cooperates and no problems surface. PLEASE watch your speed in this area on 31 between Dana and Louisa Street as we do not want any of the workers to get hurt or walkers that still walk the side streets. Police will be beefing up protection of the workers and Fines are doubled in this area. So slow down and keep your eyes open when you are coming through.
