The Town of Orleans announced Friday the beginning of extensive work on the parking lot at Skaket Beach. Work, according to a release from the town, includes new drainage, a new Title 5 septic system and paving in work areas. A silt fence is also being installed along the parking lot's beach edge and electrical work is being done in the administration building.
Areas that have been excavated will be secured to avoid injury. The parking lot will remain partially open to allow abutting residents access to their properties.
Areas where work has been done will be repaved. The entire lot is scheduled for repaving in Spring 2014.
The work at Skaket Beach is expected to be completed before Memorial Day Weekend.
