The water main replacement project along North Main (Route 37) will begin this week.
Construction on the project will cause a lane reduction; the north bound lane of North Main will be closed during the duration of the project.
The lane closure will span from Washington Street to Joplin Street. The water main replacement project is expected to last approximately 30 days.
Drivers who regular this area are encouraged to use an alternate route during the project.
