Monday Aug 22nd, 2016
West Franklin Street between Park Avenue and Eutaw Street will be closed for approximately one month beginning Wednesday, August 24, 2016. This roadway needs to be closed in order for contractors to excavate as part of the bypass sewer operations related to the July 4 Mulberry Street sewer collapse.
Motorists are reminded that other nearby streets remain closed due to the ongoing emergency sewer rehabilitation and other utility repairs. These include:
West Centre Street between Cathedral Street and Park Avenue.
Westbound Saratoga Street between North Greene Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
West Mulberry Street between North Greene Street and North Paca Street.
Crosstown traffic is urged to use Lombard, Pratt and Fayette Streets to the south, or North Avenue to the north. Eastbound Saratoga Street is also OPEN.
Various routes are open for local traffic and visitors to the Mt. Vernon and surrounding communities.
Remember, businesses remain OPEN, and can be easily accessed.
