Contractors will take a break over the Fourth of July as they work to complete the Lagoon Pond drawbridge.

Tisbury selectman and Lagoon Pond drawbridge committee member Melinda Loberg provided the following update on scheduled work, according to the contractor.

Street paving and marking will not be completed until after the July Fourth weekend.

Lane closures will be in effect from 7 am to 4 pm at varying times to allow for sidewalk paving on Thursday, June 30; roadway paving from Wednesday, July 6, to Friday, July 8; and from Monday, July 11, to Friday, July 13, to install pavement markings (stripe) on the roadway; salt marsh restoration (deliveries of rock and sand); and the installation of concrete pavement at the sediment basin maintenance road at the Beach Road Shoulder.

The Lagoon Pond Bridge is currently operating under the May 15 to Sept. 15 daily bridge-opening schedule for boats transiting the passage, which allows for five potential double-lane closings per day between 8:15 am and 8 pm.
