Crews with the Shelly Co. will begin surface grinding of Main Street from Brown Avenue to Northview Drive on Wednesday.

Paving will begin on the bypass section on Monday requiring a one-day closure and continue northward. 


Traffic will be maintained for the remainder of the project but motorists are encouraged to find alternate route to avoid delays and reduce congestion.
