Beach Road in Tisbury will be down to one lane from Monday through Thursday as the state Department of Transportation conducts milling and paving operations on the road.

According to a release on the town of Tisbury’s website, the road will require a one-way detour for westbound traffic traveling from Oak Bluffs to Vineyard Haven as MassDOT resumes work on the road’s broad reconstruction project.

The westbound lane will be closed from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week, from Sept. 27 through Sept. 30. Restrictions will not apply to emergency vehicles.

A detour will force westbound traffic to circumvent the Lagoon, with cars traveling from Oak Bluffs redirected through the rotary and the Vineyard Haven-Edgartown Road.

Tisbury Lieut. Bill Brigham said reducing the road to one lane would allow for work to be completed more expediently, and cautioned travelers with Steamship Authority reservations to plan accordingly.

“Drivers who are traveling through the affected areas should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution,” a release from MassDOT states.
