Exeter Public Works Update

PRESS RELEASE

Exeter Public Works and construction crews are replacing a collapsed 15-inch sewer main on High Street in Exeter. Ongoing coordination with adjacent utilities, including Unitil, is required to safely maintain all utility services. New welded steel gas main must be installed before the existing gas line can be removed which will then allow access to and construction of new sewer main. This work is anticipated 10 or more days.

The intersection of High Street (NH Routes 27 & 111) and Portsmouth Avenue (NH Route 108) is closed to through traffic resulting in the rerouting of traffic in this area (see detour route map). Through motorists are advised to seek alternate routes through next week. All businesses remain open. Regular updates will continue to be provided as the work progresses.

The map is now attached. Updates can be found online on the Town website.
A brief video will be uploaded to this page this evening as well! We appreciate your patience and cooperation!

 

Similarity Awareness Presentations at LSS All Week

dsn_ne_passage_logos-2All week during LSS PE classes, students will experience an active presentation by UNH’s Northeast Passage.

Northeast Passage describes the experience as follows:

The presentation aims to create “Similarity Awareness”, which allows students of all ages to see that people with disabilities are an important part of our society and should be embraced and understood. The goal of the program is to give students, teachers and administrators the tools to discuss and explore the similarities we all share, regardless of ability.

Through this program, Northeast Passage brings wheelchairs and accessories to facilitate and play a variety of indoor wheelchair sports/games. This experience teaches non-disabled students that although using a wheelchair while playing a sport takes skill and practice, it’s also challenging, athletic and fun.

This program provided exercise and a great learning experience for our students.  Many smiles and thought provoking questions have been seen so far!
