This information was posted by the Town of Madison, Department of Public Works & Engineering, June 13:

Reconstruction of Middle Beach Road

The project consists of the full depth reconstruction of a portion of the roadway and sidewalk damaged during Tropical Storm Irene between Tuxis Road and Park Avenue.

Work is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, June 20th and is anticipated to be complete by mid-August, prior to the beginning of the start of the school year.

Temporary signage indicating detour routes around the work area will be installed the week of June 11th in the vicinity of the project.

Middle Beach Road, between Island Avenue and East Wharf Road will be open to local traffic throughout the construction period, however in the vicinity of the work area, traffic will be limited to one lane in the westbound direction.  In addition, the traffic direction for the section of Tuxis Road between Middle Beach Road and Prospect Street will be reversed to be one way in the northbound direction.

Motorists should expect temporary delays at times dependent on the phase of the contractors operations.  Please exercise caution when traveling through the construction limits and be aware of workmen present in the road.

If you have specific questions about the project, please contact the Engineering Division at 203-245-5611.

I've had a lot of people ask me to get information on the site recently and I'm trying to keep up with the requests. I don't want you to think I'm ignoring you. If I don't get to this as quickly as you'd like, keep in mind that you can go to a Board of Selectmen meeting and ask directly. They have some early morning meetings and some in the evening. A link to all the meetings is posted on the front of Madison Patch every day. Or call town hall. If you get to it before I do, let me know what you hear. Thanks.

Pat, does your sis still own the place near West Wharf? I hope I see you down there this summer! Maybe around the 4th ...

Another major storm will hit the Madison shoreline, there whole area will be destroyed due to the sea walls not being repaired and in place and everyone in town government will say " How could this have happened?"

School buses? Seriously? These can be rerouted to stop at the end of Island, East Wharf and West Wharf to pick up kids. We are talking about hundreds of residents who enjoy Middle Beach road in the summer (not just a "few"), not to mention those who live there, and who are among the highest taxpayers in the town, and also probably don't have many kids in the school system. With the Madison Beach Hotel traffic and the regular tremendous increase in summer traffic, good luck to anyone living on Parker, East Wharf or West Wharf, trying to navigate through town on the Post Road.

Is there an update on the status of all these Town projects?
