Colchester Causeway Closure

Causeway Closed WEB

The Colchester Causeway will be closed for repairs Sept. 3, 2019 - May 24, 2020.

NOTICE: The Colchester Causeway will be CLOSED to all pedestrian and bike traffic starting Sept. 3, 2019 for repairs to damage caused during a 2018 storm.  Work is expected to be complete by Memorial Day 2020.


The Town of Colchester has signed a contract with J.P. Sicard to perform repairs to the Colchester Causeway Recreation Path.  The Causeway sustained about $1.8M in damages during the high water and severe windstorm that occurred in May 2018.  Due to the statewide importance of the Colchester Causeway’s recreational and related economic activity there was substantial state and federal funding available for these repairs, leaving the Town’s share at just over $100,000.
 
We are thankful to our State and federal partners for providing funding for the majority of the repairs and for the significant temporary repairs that Governor Scott and the State Agency of Transportation provided last year.
 
The Causeway will be closed to all users during the construction. The upcoming repairs should be finished by summer 2020.
