Beginning Friday June 17, there will be a change in the Route 54 work schedule since the project will be continuing through the summer. The Route 54 project is to widen the roadway between Route 20 and the Mallard Lakes development – it will include improved left turn lanes, bike lanes and sidewalks. Allowing work to continue will bring the project to a close by June of 2012. However residents, visitors, and business owners are concerned about delays and, starting this week, the contractor will only be allowed to use lane closures from 6 am to 3 pm Monday through Thursday. Work can continue on Fridays, however it would be on the shoulders and not impeding beach-bound Friday traffic. When the summer traffic volume decreases, then the contractor will again work Monday through Friday.
