Southbound 2ndStreet will be closed at Half Main Street.

  • Southbound 2nd Street will be closed between Half Main Street and Half Elm Street. 
  •  All traffic on southbound 2nd Street will be detoured onto Half Main Street and can use 3rd Street to go south.

  • This includes closing the south half of the Elm Street intersections with 6th Street and 7th Street.  
  • Westbound Elm Street will remain open, but no traffic will be able to cross Elm Street on 6th or 7th Streets.
