New Detour

We all need more and different detours! Bob Brownson, Project Manager for Vinton Construction Company (Jackman St. bridge project) has let us know that beginning Monday October 26th there will be a change in the detour traffic pattern. Water Street will close for about a week and a half. THE NEW AND ONLY ACCESS ROUTE WILL BE FROM STATE TO JACKMAN. Subject to weather delays, the PROJECT IS DUE FOR COMPLETION BY NOVEMBER 15TH. Thanks to Atlas Coffee Mill's Sue Bogenschutz for originally posting this information.

The Association also brings the neighborhood together for an annual dinner (in January) and an end-of-summer picnic (in September.)
