Portion of Lester River Road to close beginning Monday for culvert replacement 

A segment of Lester River Road - from the Lester Park Golf Course to Strand Road - will be closed beginning Monday, July 22, for culvert replacement work. The closure is expected to last three weeks and is the first part of a repaving project that will be complete this fall.


During the three-week closure, golfers and anyone else visiting the Lester Park Golf Course must access Lester River Road via Superior Street.
