Street Closure--Gorham Street

Thursday, May 18, 2017 - 9:24am

On Saturday, May 20th, Gorham Street will be closed completely and detoured at North Blair Street starting at 7:00 a.m. The full closure is needed to complete the asphalt paving.  The street is expected to reopen around 3:00 p.m.

Intersection cross traffic will be maintained when possible, but there will be extended periods when cross traffic will not be possible, especially during paving as traffic cannot drive on the new asphalt until it has properly cooled. Driveway access will be maintained except for short periods of time until the new asphalt has properly cooled.

Based on the current weather forecast, there is a good chance rain postpones paving.  If so, no work will take place on Saturday.  Instead, Gorham Street will be closed starting at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 21st and reopened around 4:00 p.m.

See the attached map.
