RE: Temporary closure and detour, Hwy 35/ George Street between Gillette Street and Clinton Street
On Thursday, September 05, 2019, Highway 35/ George Street between Gillette Street and Clinton Street will be closed to vehicular traffic. The public sidewalk along the street will also be closed as well for safety.
The temporary closure is necessary to fix aging underground structures and patch and overlay the roadway.
A detour will be posted, using Highway 53/Rose Street and Clinton Street.
I urge motorists to be aware of fluctuating traffic patterns, and to anticipate backups throughout the day—particularly in the morning and afternoon peak times. Depending on weather, the closure is expected to last two months, with the Highway 35/ George Street reopening by the first week of November, 2019.
