Beginning tomorrow, October 2, Walsh Fence will begin replacement of the Greenway fencing. The removal and replacement will begin at the Rt. 34 bridge, next to the Rt. 8 on ramp, and proceed north to Division Street. Walsh Fence anticipates completing several hundred feet per day. While replacement is taking place the section being worked on will be closed to all pedestrian traffic. Anyone using the walkway will need to turn around when they reach the work area. The walkway will fully reopen at the completion of each work day. Any questions or concerns during the times of construction should be directed to Derby Public Works.
