Work crews Henson & Son, Inc. are continuing to patch utility trenches in South Locust Street. Due to the location and sizes of some of the patches, there will not be enough space to complete the work and keep traffic flowing by the work areas. Therefore, beginning at 9:15 AM on Wednesday, December 4th (weather permitting), South Locust Street will be closed to traffic between Baltimore Street and Antietam Street. At 9:15 AM on Thursday, December 5th, South Locust Street will be closed to traffic between Antietam Street and Washington Street. Motorists approaching the work areas will be forced to detour via other City Streets, and will encounter cones, barricades, and other traffic control devices. The contractor expects to reopen the street to traffic by 2:00 PM each afternoon.
Emergency vehicles will not be able to pass through these blocks of South Locust Street while the closures are in effect, but will be able to respond to service calls in these blocks.
