CHINCOTEAGUE STREETSCAPE CONSTRUCTION FINAL PHASE
Construction began February 29, 2016 on the final phase of the downtown streetscape construction. Please expect temporary changes to traffic patterns and business access during construction. All businesses will continue to have access during construction except during the time when concrete is being poured directly in front of the doorway.
Sidewalk construction will take place on one side of the street and then the other. There will be a short period between the time that demolition is complete and the concrete base for the pavers is poured when extra caution will be needed when walking downtown. At some points traffic may be rerouted for a short period. Please comply with all posted signs for traffic and parking.
Please contact Harvey Spurlock if you have questions.
