Traffic is flowing again on Lake St. as Winchester’s Department of Public Works opened the bridge that connects Main St. to Wildwood St.   As soon as the detour and road closed signs came down, with little fanfare cars started traveling in both directions.

Earlier this morning paving crews could be seen prepping the bridge surface and by 5:00 pm the road had been paved.  The few remaining DPW workers were cleaning up the last few details and taking down the detour signs.  Mike Wise of the DPW announced the reopening on Facebook, and there was much rejoicing.

The sidewalks are still closed and the temporary sidewalk is the only path to cross for pedestrians.    That work will take a little longer.
