Lucas Street will be closed to all traffic from Green to West 4th Street, including the Green Street intersection beginning today, Wednesday, March 29, as work begins to prepare this section of Lucas Street for repaving.

The West Hill Sanitary and Storm Sewer Separation Project underground work was completed last fall, but the weather did not permit repaving to be accomplished before the winter shutdown.

Local traffic only past the Main Street and West 4th Street intersections.

Northbound through traffic on Lucas will be detoured from West 4th Street onto Cherry Street, to West 5th Street, to Locust Street, and to West 8th Street. Southbound through traffic on Lucas will be detoured on to West 8th Street, to Locust Street, to West 5th Street, and to Cherry Street.

Please obey all traffic control signage and be alert for construction workers. The closure is expected to last 2-3 weeks, weather permitting.
