To the Editor:
It is finally done. The new, environmentally friendly drainage ditch on East Chop Drive and Mill Square Road is finished and ready to be tested with some summer downpours. The many drivers, walkers, and bikers who travel up and down the Chop will no longer need to wear waders. Thanks to the conservation commission, and especially Liz Durkee, for persisting until they were able to obtain a grant to pay for the project.
White-Lynch, Richard Combra, and the Oak Bluffs Highway Department and Tony Rebello’s crew have been professional and hardworking and yet willing to take the time to explain the whole process over and over again to everyone who passed by with questions.
