Storm drain work will alter traffic pattern on North Franklin Street

Orange "road work ahead" sign

Work is scheduled to begin the week of June 10 on the North Franklin Storm Drain Project. The project consists of realigning a portion of storm drain that currently flows under local businesses. The purpose of this project is to eliminate this impact and reduce the potential for flooding in the area.

Construction is expected to take 12 weeks. During this time, N. Franklin Street will be closed to thru traffic; motorists must follow the detour around the road closure. The closure barricades will be placed near Graham Street and extend roughly 500 feet down the street toward the intersection of Depot Street. Business access to the areas outside of the barricade but within N. Franklin Street between Main Street and Depot Street will be maintained. See the below map for the identified area of road closure.

This project is a separate project from the current sewer work being done on N. Franklin Street. This storm drain work will begin as soon as the sewer work near the intersection of N. Franklin Street and Depot Street concludes.
