From the Town Administrator:  We are making repairs to the Stone Wharf to improve the stability of the existing structure.  The seawall under the parking area has deteriorated over the years due to erosion and needs some work to make it more secure.  The boat ramp retaining walls have also deteriorated and need to be repaired.  Mobilization of equipment by Roger Hale of Fore River Dock & Dredge, Inc. took place sooner than expected.  The duration of the project will be 3 to 4 weeks.  I will post updates as needed.  Feel free to call me if you have any concerns.
