Paving to cause delays in West Newbury

Drivers traveling through West Newbury should expect some temporary road closings and traffic delays now through Friday, Aug. 11 due to road paving. Town officials stress that the paving schedule is tentative, as inclement weather could extend the work additional days. Roads that will be impacted are Bridge Street and the lower part of Church Street (from Prospect Street to Ferry Lane), along with Waterside Lane and portions of Dole Place and Peasant Street.
