AVOID RAPHUNE HILL AT NIGHT; IT'S BEING PAVED

Public Works is repaving Raphune Hill from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. this week, so motorists would be wise to take alternative routes.
Crews have been working all night since Monday to remove and replace old decayed asphalt on that well-traveled road, according to Tyrone Martin, special ssistant to the DPW commissioner.
Accommodations will be made for buses and residents of the area, but Martin asked all others to avoid the Route 38 area until work is completed.
"If you have to use the road, please adhere to all traffic signs and flag persons," Martin added.
The area is illuminated while crews are working.
"It is a minor inconvenience for a major accomplishment," Martin said.
Work on New Tutu, Route 382, from Splash 'n Dash car wash to the road going into the valley, has been delayed due to all the rain, according to Martin.
Other roads slated for work are: Route 33, Crown Mountain Road, from the old Tri-Mart intersection to the top of the hill; Route 30, the concrete road into Fortuna; and Route 39, Donoe Road, where Public Works is installing proper drainage and sidewalks.
