A detour utilizing the Williston Road is in place. All business and the school are still accessible from Market Street via Dorset Street.

For the week of November 19,2018 all work associated with this project will be occurring within the limit of the closed portion of roadway and along the shoulder embankments within the project limits.
The contractor is planning on line striping the newly paved portion of road with temporary line striping this week. They will also be working on sidewalk subgrades and water taps for the east end of the project. Work will also include ongoing cleanup and site preparation as the contractor prepares to open the road on November 20th to through traffic. There will be no work on project November 22nd and 23rd during the Thanksgiving Holiday.
There will be an increase in truck traffic to the site and there may be some minor traffic delays associated with these activities. Traffic control will be present as necessary. Your safety is our top priority so remember to follow all traffic control signs and provide the flaggers and workers your undivided attention.
