NOTICE: Due to worsening conditions of the road base and continued rain, the southbound lane of Mason Street between Mountain Street and the north side Oak Street has been closed to all traffic throughout today and tonight.

Crews will be working tonight, Friday night, Sept. 20 and possibly Saturday night, Sept. 21 to finish paving between Mountain Avenue and Laurel Street. The decision has been made to work through these nights due to conditions and the need to complete remaining work without prolonged exposure.

Work occurs AT NIGHT from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Mason Street will also be closed at the east-west Street intersections to the work zone during these hours.

The project schedule is an estimate based on favorable conditions; variances may occur due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Suggested detour routes during working hours include Howes Street, Remington Street and College Avenue.
