MADISON, Conn. (WTNH) — Roads and bike paths at two beach areas at Hammonasset Beach State Park will be temporarily closed according to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).

DEEP says the roads and bike paths at Meigs Point and East Beach are closed due to an underway construction project aimed at improving water and electrical systems within the park.

The roads will remain closed on weekdays for the next several weeks, but will reopen for use on weekends during construction.

DEEP noted the Meigs Point Nature Center will also be closed during construction on weekdays, but will be back open on weekends.

Park visitors are still able to access the Meigs Point and East Beach sections of the park by foot.
