Weather permitting, beginning on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, Oakland Avenue, between Maple Street and Grant Court, will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic. This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate street pavement repair in the area. It is anticipated that Oakland Avenue will reopen to normal traffic by late morning on Thursday, November 19th.

Motorists are encouraged to allow extra travel time as delays may be possible.  As always, caution should be exercised when driving through all construction areas.
