To Whom It May Concern:

The Town of Hingham will be repaving the entire length or sections of the following roads during the

period of October 6, 2017 and will continue through October 13, 2017.

  • Lantern Lane (Dead End – Lafayette)

The exact scheduling dates for each roadway will be dependent on weather conditions. The final
