There will be temporary tabs in place for lane and crosswalk markers. Once the newly paved surface is cured, normally after two weeks, crews will return to add permanent lane and crosswalk striping.Park Drive Closure Crews are working on Park Drive and the road is closed to through traffic from Tamarack Avenue to Monroe Street.
