The City of Rye is beginning the repair of both Fireman’s Memorial Circle downtown as well as the World War I flagpole memorial at the intersection of Purchase Street and Boston Post Road. The contractors are mobilizing at this time with construction work to take place over the upcoming weeks. During this time, the contractors will provide barricades and detour signs in the area of construction to re-route traffic, if needed.
Access for local traffic will be available during the construction. Your patience and consideration during this construction project is appreciated as we work to improve the area for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Work will include the much needed repaving of the area.
We regret that bid process and contractor delays have caused this long-planned work to start at such a busy time. We will work hard to limit any inconvenience.
