One way traffic due to sewer repair on West Main Street

A contractor working for OWASA plans to repair a sewer on West Main Street between James and Simpson Streets from Monday, April 20 through Friday, April 24 from 9 AM to 4 PM. The work schedule is subject to change due to weather and other factors.

Vehicle traffic will be one-way and the bike lane and sidewalk in the work area will be closed as shown on the map below. Flaggers will direct drivers and cyclists around the work area, and there will be a pedestrian detour around the work area.

The contractor will install steel plates over the repair area so that vehicle traffic and sidewalk use will be normal before and after the work hours, but the bike lane will remain closed at night.
