So, they say if you want something done right do it yourself. We complained to Mass. Highway about the conditions of the traffic islands on Rt.6 in Fairhaven. They were filled with weeds growing through the asphalt and in some places the weeds were as high as the traffic signals. So, a group of volunteers got together in cooperation with the Fairhaven Board of Public Works to tackle the task of cleaning up the unsightly traffic islands stretching from Washington Street to Narragansett Boulevard.
Fairhaven BPW arranged for a police detail on the busy stretch of highway and donated the Eco-friendly material to control the weeds after they were removed.
Efforts are underway to finish the job from Route 240 to Narragansett Blvd. Anyone wishing to volunteer for this or any other future project should e-mail WOliveira@Fairhaven-Ma.Gov.
Volunteers who participated in this past week’s clean-up were: Tommy DeSouza and Patrick Pacheco of BRW Property Services of Fairhaven; Wayne Oliveira, Gary Lavalette, Geoff Haworth, Jayme Morin.
Special thanks to Rita Rodericks who cleaned the Washington Street/Route 6 island all by herself.
