The Cordova Police Department would like to remind drivers to use caution when transiting Whitshed Road. With new pavement in place, it may be easy to become complacent and not pay attention to the posted speed limits which are 25 mph to 25 mph on sections of the road.
The most congested area is the first mile or so. Pedestrians and bike-riders are of chief concern. There are a lot of young children near Heney trailer park, the city campground and baseball field.
D.O.T. has posted a couple of new signs to get drivers attention in the high traffic areas.
Safe Routes to School Construction will begin soon to complete new sidewalks and drainage along lower 3rd Street and Lake Avenue. Expect some local traffic impacts, but the end result will be worth it!
Finally be mindful of the chip sealing at the intersection of Nicholoff and Harbor Loop Roads as crews work to improve that well-used and well-worn area.

The City Council voted at their June 17th, 2015 meeting not to enter into contract with the only bidder on the paving project for the 2015 construction season. Council directed staff to readvertise the Invitation to Bid in the Fall/Winter of 2015 for the 2016 construction season. In lieu of paving, the Public Works Crew will do their best to maintain the integrity of the Nicholoff and Harbor Loop Roads throughout this busy summer season.
The Cordova Public Library is open on Sundays during the summer season from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm. A great quiet time to pick up the books and magazines you may need for the week ahead.
