Hedwig Road Project update-sidewalk closing.
The Hedwig Road drainage improvement project is moving along. In order to complete the project it is necessary to temporarily close the sidewalk on the west side of Hedwig Road. The contractor had planned to close the sidewalk from Smithdale to Beinhorn at the beginning of the project but due to numerous requests for children to utilize the sidewalk to access MDE during school year, the sidewalk closure was deferred until now. The project is approximately 30% complete the contractor needs to close the sidewalk now for safety and project management reasons. The project includes re-pouring the sidewalk and putting new inlets in the sidewalk to allow for better drainage.
The sidewalk will be closed to the public beginning July 14, 2014. It is anticipated the sidewalk will remain closed until approximately September 1, 2014.
