East Street intersection closed Friday

DPW Ted Henderson announced Friday that the East Street intersection will be closed Friday and will remain closed until the end of the project. This leaves no access for residents who live between East Street and Brown Street forcing them to park either one of those two streets.

The closing of the East Street intersection also cuts off full access to the high school parking lot, which means students will have to park in the pool parking and in other locations.
