For this portion of work, no traffic interruptions are expected. Additional updates on traffic impacts for this project will be provided as the work plan progresses.
  • Line Painting: The 2019 annual line painting and maintenance program is underway and will continue over the coming months and includes traffic lines, edge lines, crosswalks, stop bars, margins and arrows throughout the Town.
  • Peter Barry Duff Memorial Park Light Installation: The weather has impacted the work schedule for this project, and it is now expected to be completed the end of June.
  • Storm Sewer Cleanout on Topsail Road: This work is expected to be completed by May 31

The Town continues to work with our contractors to minimize traffic impacts as much as possible, but unfortunately traffic interruptions are unavoidable, and we ask residents for their continued patience as we work to enhance our road and transportation system. The Town will continue provide updates on construction projects throughout the work season. Please check back here for updates.
