All the major elements of the work on Winthrop Shore Drive and Highlands Park was completed last summer, approximately 9 months ahead of schedule, saving months of construction disturbance to residents. As the summer of 2019 approaches, the “punch list” of minor items to be completed and minor repairs will be wrapping up. The following work items are ongoing along Winthrop Shore Drive.

You can expect to see these activities continue over the next four weeks.
