A large portion of Tabor House Road in Chilmark will be closed for several days this week due to a repaving project.
The road will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday from the North Road intersection to the town landfill. Residents will be able to access Tiercel Lane and Middle Line Road from Middle Road until the paving reaches those roads.
Paving is expected to begin from the North Road intersection, moving toward Middle Road. Both lanes will be paved to eliminate a risk of a center seam cracking, the Chilmark highway department said in an announcement posted on the town website.
Voters approved $200,000 for the repaving of Tabor House Road at the annual town meeting in April. A paving schedule for Menemsha will be discussed at the Chilmark selectmen’s weekly meeting on Tuesday night.
