Harvest Lane work through mid July

Notice Harvest Lane is a little slower than usual? That’s because, for the time being at least, construction crews will be taking over the roadway, filtering cars through while work on a public sidewalk continues.

Be ready to pause for S.D. Ireland, the company contracted by Williston, as they work on the sidewalks, (which are part of the Taft Corners Area Missing Pedestrian Link.) It is one of the ways the town is providing “full connectivity” between Route 2 and Marshall Avenue: with 1,600 feet of new sidewalk on the east side of Harvest Lane.

The town received a $253,750 grant from Transportation Alternatives to help pay for the sidewalk link, as part of an 80 percent/20 percent matching grant.

Project construction schedules  work to take place between 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, with occasional later hours if needed. The crews will begin to demobilize the week of July 11 through 15.

Town officials advise motorists that they may continue along Marshall Avenue to South Brownell if they wish to avoid Harvest Lane completely for the duration of the project.
