A reader took the initiative to write to the town for the details of the impending road closures and has received a letter back which, unfortunately, I’m too technologically challenged to reproduce here. But the highlights seem far more encouraging than the first reports.
Most of the time, the roads will be open (one lane) to traffic, though there will be “occasional weekend or evening closures” occurring sporadically, 30 days, total (estimated) during the entire construction. The closures are estimated to last ” a few days at a time”, which would seem to indicate to me that they’ll extend past weekends and evenings, but ….
Estimated construction will last from the spring of 2014 through the fall of 2018 (!).
There was supposed to be a map of the exact detour route through Riverside attached, but I didn’t receive it. I’ll try to get a copy of it and if possible, post it here.
Should make for interesting beach traffic.
