Weather permitting, on Friday, November 6, 2015, Spruce Street, between Highland Avenue and Deforest Avenue, will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic. This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate the repair of a water main in the area. It is anticipated that Spruce will reopen to normal traffic by late afternoon on the same day.

Motorists are encouraged to allow extra travel time or to seek an alternate route during this time period.  As always, caution should be exercised when driving through all construction areas.
