11/28/2016 - Temporary lane reduction: 3rd Street, between State and Pearl Streets
On the morning of Tuesday, November 29, 2016, at approximately 7:00 A.M., 3rd Street (southbound USH 53) will be temporarily reduced to one lane of vehicular traffic, between State Street and Pearl Street.  The closure is necessary for storm sewer work.

No formal detour will be posted, as 3rd Street will remain open, at reduced capacity, throughout construction.  Suggested alternate routes include 7th Street and 2nd Street.

I would urge motorists to be aware of changing traffic patterns and to expect delays inbound to downtown, especially in the morning.  It is anticipated that the temporary lane closure will be for two (2) days, with 3rd Street fully re-opened no later 7:00 A.M. on Thursday, December 1, 2016.
