Construction will begin today on the water line along Allen Street in the block from Main Street to N. Pearl Street. This will include a full closure of the road for vehicular traffic between Main Street and N. Pearl Street. Traffic will be detoured along North Street and Virginia Street. All businesses within this block will remain open and pedestrians will continue to have sidewalk access at all times.

Water line work is anticipated to last one to two weeks per block (approximately 4-8 weeks for full completion of the water line). Road closures will continue along Allen Street as work progresses and detour routes will be updated. Full reconstruction will begin after the water line work has been completed.
