To prepare for the pavement overlay, the contractor will be lowering the utility covers in the pavement area on Tuesday 6/13 which will require lane closure.
To help make it easier to enjoy and support downtown businesses, there will be free parking during the roadway closures along East Blithedale (Throckmorton to Forrest St) and at the Depot Plaza parking lot.
