Utility Work Along Five Mile Trail

Five Mile Trail users are urged to be on the lookout for utility work along the trail near Newtown Road. A buried fiberoptic line will be installed along the trail from Newtown Road connecting to the telecommunications tower that sits about a half mile from Newtown Road. Daytime work on weekdays is scheduled to begin around June 1 and last about 30 days. 

Trail traffic will be maintained with safety precautions in place. A short-term, announced closure may occur, as equipment is brought in at the beginning of the construction and removed once work is completed. Notice will be posted of those planned closures, which will last less than two hours.
