A letter from the MassDOT to southbound drivers Dear Staff/Constituents/Patients (etc.): Beginning on April 1st, 2019 MassDOT will begin a two-year rehabilitation project of the Tobin Bridge and Chelsea Viaduct which together carry Route 1 through Chelsea, over the Mystic River, and into Boston. This project, known as the Tobin Bridge/Chelsea Curves Rehabilitation, will ensure that the elevated portions of Route 1 which have not been significantly rehabilitated since the 1970’s can continue to safely and efficiently carry passenger and freight traffic in and out of Boston. This vital project will have inevitable traffic impacts.

Lions Club looking for used glasses The Saugus Lions will be holding an eyeglass drive at all Saugus Public Schools during the month of April. April is Sports Eye Safety month. To all our Saugus athletes, remember to wear your protective eyewear to avoid eye injury. Please have your student bring any prescription glasses that are no longer used to their schools beginning April 1. The Lions collect used glasses, then distribute them to people who cannot afford to buy their own. We accept all glasses for adults and children. The Saugus Lions would like to thank the principals for allowing the drive to take place in their buildings. Help make your library better Saugus Public Library Director Alan Thibeault asked me to put the word out that he and his staff are seeking public feedback, loads of it if readers have the time to take a survey. So, I’ll let Alan do the talking: “How are we doing? What can we do better? “The Saugus Public Library is in the midst of gathering data to produce a five year strategic plan for public library services in Saugus. We value your opinion and need your input to produce the best possible plan. To accomplish this, we are conducting a survey concerning library services. We realize that everyone is busy this time of year and we don’t want to impose on your valuable time. The survey should take less than ten minutes to complete and will be of immense help in guiding the planning process. “Copies of the survey are available at both our Reference and Circulation Desks. An online version of the survey can be found on the library’s Web site (www.sauguspubliclibrary. org) or in hard copy at the library’s main desk.” Alan, thanks you for your feedback.
