The Department of Public Works plans to take advantage of a brief interlude of sunny and relatively mild weather forecast for Wednesday, Feb. 24, and will undertake much-needed road repairs on North Main Street.

The section of North Main Street between Fern Street and Asylum Avenue will be closed to through traffic between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. to allow crews to mill and pave the road failure in the area of the North Main Street road project.

“Our attempts to temporary patch the road with traditional winter maintenance methods have not been sufficient,” Director of Public Works John Phillips said. “We are fortunate to have access to hot bituminous material and warm temperatures to take this project on tomorrow,” he said Tuesday evening.

Crews are scheduled to begin work at 9 a.m., following the morning rush hour, and the work is expected to take about four hours.

Certified work zone safety flaggers will be stationed at the road closure points, and will be directing traffic at adjoining side streets, Phillips said.

Access to the American School for the Deaf campus will remain available, and residents on North Main Street will be able to access their homes while the work is taking place, Phillips said.
