Bliss Road Finally Gets A Facelift
Construction begins today on the portion of Bliss Road that was damaged late last year by flash flooding. The entire roadway will be removed at the construction site and the road will be completely impassable during most of the project.
Bliss Road has been closed for the past year, and continues to be closed during construction. This closure applies not only to vehicles, but also to bicycles, pedestrians, and all other unauthorized persons. The police department has been directed to issue citations to persons violating the road closure.
Bliss Road is expected to be reopened to all traffic in early November.
