Flower bed maintenance will occur at the medians on Weymouth Street and Water Street from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Traffic control personnel will be on site to maintain traffic flow.

Work will be taking place on Beach Grove Road from the corner of Maypoint Road towards the Beach Grove Home. Traffic may be reduced to one lane, alternating throughout the day. These delays are necessary for the construction of the active pathway along Beach Grove Road that will connect to a trail near the Beach Grove Home. This work is expected to be ongoing for the next several weeks.
