LISBON — An expansion of the town’s beach and campground is nearly finished.

Michael J. O’Neil, Lisbon beach and campground director, said last week that it is roughly “85 percent” finished.

Adding 11 sites and upgrading 32, the $173,000 project is slated to be finished within the coming week.

On Friday, workers from Fiacco & Riley Construction, Norwood, were busy digging trenches for the power lines that will provide electricity to the new sites.

“We have to test the sewer and the water,” Mr. O’Neil said, describing what’s left on the project.

Additionally, wind gusts over the last several days removed much of the seeding and mulch work done on the campground.

“We’ll have to do more seeding in the spring,” Mr. O’Neil said.

The project also has been plagued with holdups because of large stones, or small boulders, that fill the ground in the area. Many of these stones have been moved to line the campground’s road.

Mr. O’Neil said the campground already is being booked for next year.
