Storm sewer replacement construction will begin this week on Lincoln Avenue between Spring Street and Root Street.

The project will require the southbound traffic lane on Lincoln to be closed from Liberty Street to Root Street. A detour will be posted.

In addition, no parking will be allowed on either side of Lincoln Avenue from Spring Street to Root Street.

Access to the commuter parking lot will not be impacted during construction, but some short term delays entering and exiting the lot can be expected.

Weather permitting, construction is scheduled to be completed in three weeks.
