The developers of 280 Island Hwy. are connecting a sewer line across Island Highway to around Beaumont Avenue. As a result, lane closures with alternating traffic will be in effect in that area until Monday, June 17, a public traffic advisory notice said.

The area is getting frontage improvements, including the installation of a sidewalk as part of the road work.
