Road Detour on Topsail Road
To accommodate the installation of underground infrastructure at the intersection of St. Thomas Line and Topsail Road, additional detour routes will be added to the area on June 12 -13. This work is part of the Phase IV Topsail Road Widening project. 

Eastbound traffic will proceed through Topsail Road, from 7 - 9 a.m. At 9 a.m., eastbound traffic will be detoured through Spracklin Blvd. 

Westbound traffic on Topsail Road will be detoured through Glendarek Drive, until 4 p.m., at which time westbound traffic will proceed through Topsail Road. 

The Town will implement several traffic calming measures along the detour routes. During construction, the public is reminded to proceed with caution and to reduce speeds in construction zones and detour routes, especially when in the vicinity of the school. 

Information is available on the Town website.
Garbage Box Removal Starts 
June 12

The Town will 
start collecting garbage boxes not removed fro m the front of your property line on June 12.

Automated Garbage Collection uses Town-supplied wheeled carts and garbage boxes are no longer needed as part of the waste collection. Garbage boxes left at the end of driveways and near the road create problems for the automated garbage collection.

You can keep your garbage box as long as it's not at the front of your property. You can re-purpose your garbage box; some uses include:
  • Sort bottles that are to be taken to the recycling depot
  • Store outdoor garden supplies or toys, or;
  • Convert them to rain barrels to collect water for gardens or compost bins.
 If you don't want to re-purpose your garbage box, we'll collect it for you. Garbage boxes not removed from in front of property building lines will be considered left for disposal and the Town will collect them.

Paint the Pavement 
The Town held a Paint the Pavement at Octagon Pond Elementary on June 7.

Through the use of large street murals, Paint the Pavement projects aim to build community spirit, encourage artistic talent, and calm traffic.  Artist Jennifer O'Brien-Strapp worked with the students at Octagon Pond Elementary to design a pavement mural relevant to their school.  She then helped the students to paint it.

Paint the Pavement projects were held at the other three Paradise schools - Elizabeth Park Elementary, Paradise Elementary and Holy Family Elementary -last June. As Octagon Pond Elementary was not open at that time, the project for that school was deferred to this year.
