Automated phone calls went out to area residents today from the Harwich Harbormaster.
The Pleasant Road Beach is being used as a storage/drainage area for the dredged material coming out of Allen Harbor. The beach will be closed as the material/sand/muck is piled there - and it will be there about two months (so, into March or April)
He warned that it "may smell."
The parking area will be open for cars, if you want to drive through and check it out, but the beach itself will be closed.
