10 CUMBERLAND JUNE 4-10, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION BREEZE PHOTO BY ETHAN SHOREY Workers on Tuesday morning saw through the SUBSURFACE AT CHAPEL FOUR CORNERS in Cumberland as they prepare for final repaving of this intersection and the double roundabouts nearby this Saturday, June 6. BREEZE PHOTO BY ETHAN SHOREY Family-owned CHAPEL PHARMACY is not closing, say its owners. Final roundabout repaving starts Saturday CUMBERLAND – Final paving of the Cumberland double round- about project, including the Chapel Four Corners intersection, is sched- uled to begin this Saturday night, June 6, with work starting around 8 p.m. each evening except Sunday night, June 7. Work Sunday will start around 7 p.m. Rhode Island Department of Transportation spokesman Charles St. Martin said paving will mostly be done at night to minimize disruption to traffic. Paving will begin at the northern end of the project near Industrial Drive and move south until it is com- plete. When paving is taking place early in the week at the roundabouts, cer- tain on-ramps and off-ramps may be closed. Updates will be posted at www.ridot.net/traveladvisories . RIDOT expects the paving to be ongoing through the following week- end but all operations are weather- dependent and subject to change, said St. Martin. Also this week, RIDOT was deliv- ering more trees to edges of the catch basins included in the project, partic- ularly on the north side of the project abutting homes. Trees will grow over time, creating a more dense sight buf- fer. Resident Jennifer Brousseau has been leading the charge in requesting more plant life to replace the buffer that was here previously. CUMBERLAND – One of Rhode Island's last family-owned pharma- cies isn't going anywhere, say its owners, despite rumors around town that it will be leveled to make more room for more shoppers to park at Dave's Market next door. Debbie Garabedian, co-owner of the Chapel Pharmacy on Diamond Hill Road, said she's not sure where the rumor started, but heard it from various customers and an employee at Dave's. In response, she posted online that the store is in no danger of closing. "I just wanted to nip it in the bud," she said. As of late last year, the owners of Dave's Market became the phar- macy's landlords, said Garabedian. Dave's leadership is planning to do a remodeling of the exterior of the building her store is in and will also be repaving the parking lot, she said. The new façade will closely match the look of Dave's, she said. Chapel Pharmacy has been open and "fighting the good fight" through the COVID-19 crisis, serv- ing the community it's been in for more than 60 years. Dave's employees have reported growing business at the Cumberland store over the past couple of years, and the store recently added a parking area to the side as part of a major renovation.
