Beginning the week of July 10,
2017 and continuing through October 1, 2017, Cherry Street will be closed to
thru traffic between North Main Street and Vine Street.

Cherry Street with minimal impacts to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The
existing culvert was constructed in the early 1900’s and since that time has suffered
extensive deterioration that compromises its structural and hydraulic integrity
and presents safety concerns to vehicular and pedestrian traffic in that area.
Detour signs will be posted on
Cherry Street, North Main Street, and North Elm Street directing motorists to
Cherry Avenue, which will serve as the alternative route for motorists between
North Elm Street and North Main Street to the west and Cherry Street to the
