Greetings! After this unusually dreary and long winter, we are all looking forward to a warm beautiful summer in the Old Village. As I mentioned last fall, traffic for the next few months promises to be more problematic than usual due to the closure of the Mitchell River Bridge. Through conversations with Jeff Colby, the director of the DPW and Deputy Chief Cauble of the Chatham Police Department, we have learned the following:
Permitted parking will be allowed on both sides of Bridge Street as usual.
- A no trucks-no buses sign has been placed at the corner of Silverleaf and
- A U-Turn in Parking Lot sign has been placed in front of the Lighthouse.
- Policemen will not be assigned permanently to the Lighthouse/Bridge Street area but there will be constant police monitoring.
- Plans for a shuttle to Lighthouse Beach were not approved by the selectmen for this summer.
