The driveway will reopen at approximately 2 p.m.

Alternative handicapped parking options for anyone needing to visit the Town Office Building area are in front of the Post Office at 1661 Massachusetts Ave. or in the staff parking lot behind the Town Office Building. Additionally, any metered spot in Lexington Center is free as long as a handicap placard is displayed.
