Construction, Maintenance and Utilities Road Closures

West Washington Street will be closed between 1st and 2nd  streets from July 13, 2015 to December 15, 2016 to make way for construction activities located between W. Washington and W. Main Streets.  Emergency and local access will be provided.

Broad Run Road in front of number 8301 is closed until further notice due to instability in concrete retaining walls over a box culvert there, and the culvert itself. The closure is expected to continue for an extended period of time.
