Installation of safety bollards on 1st Avenue will be delayed until after light-up. The bollards are intended to prevent vehicles from accidentally driving into the sidewalk from the angled parking spaces.
The bollards arrived in the summer. However, installation was delayed at the request of the SONIC production staff until filming was finished.
With Light-up just over three weeks away, and further delays caused by recent wet weather and challenging underground utility lines, the Town has decided to temporarily fill and cap the holes that were dug for the bollards, out of concern for pedestrian safety during the annual Light-up festivities.
