The road adjoin­ing the grav­el pit and con­nect­ing Turn Point Road near the ship­yard with Pear Point Road at the grav­el pit will get its final chip-seal­ing this com­ing week, per­haps as soon as Tues­day accord­ing to coun­ty engi­neer Col­in Huntemer.

After that, and after any loose rocks are swept off, the road could open to traf­fic at the dis­cre­tion of the Coun­ty Council.

In July or August the road will be striped and fences con­struct­ed on both sides. The road will have 10’-foot vehi­cle lanes and 4‑foot shoul­ders for pedes­tri­ans or bicyclists.

Pear Point Road from there to Argyle will have at least a walk­ing path along the south side, and per­haps in the future a side­walk, curb, and gut­ter along the north side.

  1. This impor­tant road has been in the works for years. Many set­backs along the way includ­ing cyn­i­cal and self­ish chal­lenges by neigh­bors in clas­sic NIMBY fashion.

    War­bass will be much safer, fuel rigs will have a bet­ter way to approach Fri­day Har­bor, Pear Point will prob­a­bly see less­ened traf­fic and best of all there will be much greater access to the acreage that promis­es devel­op­ment of a lot more afford­able hous­ing with­in the UGA that this com­mu­ni­ty needs so badly.
