Weather permitting, beginning on Wednesday, Feb. 24, Bowery Street will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic near its intersection with Lucas Street. This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate repair work on a sanitary sewer line in the area. It is anticipated that Bowery Street will be re-opened to normal traffic by the end of the day on Saturday, Feb. 27.

Motorists are to take note of this construction work and to allow extra travel time as delays may be possible. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling in construction areas.
