Weather permitting, at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, August 18, 2017, northbound traffic on Capitol Street will be closed from Burlington Street to Washington Street. This closure will necessitate the closure of the Capitol Street entrance to the Capitol Street Parking Ramp. Access to the ramp will be maintained at its entrance off of Clinton Street. This closure will facilitate the maintenance of a fiber optic line in the area. Normal traffic will resume by mid to late morning the same day.
The Engineering Division performs work in connection with all municipal public works improvements including bridges, roads, sanitary sewers and stormwater systems. Engineering staff review subdivision plans, design public works improvement projects, perform survey work and inspect the construction of public works projects and subdivision improvements.
