Cypress Wetlands Boardwalk Closure beginning 9/16/2020
The Town will begin work tomorrow on the Cypress Wetlands Renovation project. Initial work will include placing dewatering equipment and lowering the water level. This first step will take approximately two weeks to complete. After that work will begin with removal of excess floating islands and vegetation followed by excavation to reestablish the moats around the two existing islands.
To ensure the safety of all, starting tomorrow the pathway system will need to be blocked off and will have to remain blocked off until the renovation work is completed. However, the Richmond Ave overlook as well as the amphitheater will remain open. Work is scheduled to take 6 to 8 weeks depending upon weather."
