Repair of storm sewer vault ceiling expected to close Franklin Street immediately north of Bench Street for four weeks.
Beginning Monday, April 17 at 7:00 a.m., work will begin to replace a section of concrete street on Franklin Street, immediately above Bench Street. The section to be replaced is the ceiling structure of an underground storm sewer vault. Work is expected to continue Monday through Friday for four weeks. During the four-week period, there will be no vehicle access from Franklin Street to Bench Street or vice versa. All of Bench Street will remain open.
Franklin Street between Dodge Street and Bench Street will be open to local traffic only. Please observe signs at either end of the work zone.
Pedestrian access through the construction area will remain open at all times.
First responders have been made aware of the street closure. School buses will be rerouted during the construction period.
