Weather permitting, beginning on Monday, February 29, 2016, northbound traffic on S Gilbert Street will be reduced to one lane between Lafayette Street and Court Street.  This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate the placement of a fiber optic line in the area and will be a moving operation as the installation proceeds down the roadway.  It is anticipated that normal traffic will resume by the end of the day on Thursday, March 3rd.

Motorists are to take note of this lane reduction and to allow extra travel time as delays may occur.  As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
