Town staff have been informed by our contractor at the Lowndes Avenue Construction site that they have unexpectedly encountered a problem that necessitates that they continue drilling work throughout the night. To stop the work now could create a bigger issue with the drill becoming stuck in the rocks beneath the surface of the road. The Town and its contractor are working as diligently as possible to complete the necessary work. We apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing and thank residents for their patience and understanding.
