Winter One-Way Streets



In the recent snowy winters, the roads at Point O’Woods have become difficult for passage of two-way traffic. To improve winter road safety, the Board of Governors has decided to implement one-way streets from 12/15-3/15. Streets that may be impacted include:

- Carrington Rd - Oak Rd
- East Joffre Rd - Seaview Rd
- Ridgewood Rd - Walnut Rd

Signage will be installed to reflect this change. More details to come in mid-October. Check the beach bulletin board and/or website at pointowoodsct.com for updates.
