Groton Ave

Updates for 7/15

 

There will be multiple projects happening throughout the week -

Project No 1

Crews wrapped up the final paving and striping of the Groton Ave lot on Friday, July 12. The full lot is OPEN for use.

Project No 2

Work continues between Stevenson and Graham Ave to install storm sewer catch basins and storm sewer lines. Motorists should continue using the signed detour on Madison Street. 

Motorists are reminded to use the signed Groton Ave detour route. Please note: Road Closed Signs mean there is an active work zone ahead and there is risk to drivers and workers. Local Traffic Only signs mean that drivers are accessing business and addresses in the immediate work zone. Do not use Groton Ave to bypass the signed detour route. This is dangerous for workers and motorists alike.
