BRANDON — The Brandon Boys & Girls Club permanently closed its doors late last month; it was two months after suspending operations.

Go slow through downtons Brandon; Route 7 culvert work impedes traffic

By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — Route 7 motorists though Brandon may have noticed a change downtown.

Work on the Route 7 overflow culvert began in earnest two weeks ago, creating a new traffic pattern that has business owners at odds with town officials.

The work began on Oct. 12 and by the next morning, the west side of Center Street was cordoned off with construction fencing and both lanes of traffic were shifted east. Roughly 10 parking spaces from in front of the town office building to Kennedy Park were removed to make room for the northbound lane of traffic.

BRANDON — It’s early morning in Brandon and activity is already picking up at the Neshobe River Winery. The sun rises over the hill behind the barn, bed and breakfast and garage, and the thick morning dew glistens on the grass.
