Scribner Hill Rd.-Lane Closure

Town officials posted a notice about a partial closure on Scribner Hill Rd. due to a “damaged” portion of the roadway.

“A small section of the northbound lane of Scribner Hill Rd., just north of Blue Ridge Rd., has sustained damage. The Town is engaging a geotechnical engineer to evaluate the section,” the notice read.

The section was closed on Thursday, June 9; town officials are unsure of when it will be reopened. Road crews have set up temporary stop signs on the southbound lane to accommodate alternating traffic, but officials suggest motorists use an alternate route if possible.

The announcement also noted that Director of Public Works/Town Engineer Frank Smerigilo will monitor conditions daily and provide updates “as information becomes available.”
