Beginning April 18, 2022, the contractor will begin removal of the existing roadway on East 3rd Street (from Main Street to State Street) to start the underground utility work including new water main and storm sewer. In order for the contractor to begin removal, a full road closure will be required. Depending on the weather, the closure of this block will be in effect for ten to twelve weeks, at which point the street will be reopened to traffic.
For safety's sake, please stay away from the fenced-off construction area. During the closure, temporary pedestrian access will be maintained by providing a fine-gravel walkway from each doorway to the temporary access walks.
