Disposal Road Is Closed!

Just got this important message and wanted to pass it along:

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, Disposal Road is closed.

There is a substantial construction project under way along the road and we do not want to compromise your safety or the well-being of the construction crew.

Please use Valley Brook Avenue to access DeKorte Park.

We appreciate your cooperation.

(Thanks, Jill!)
