On Sunday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m., work is tentatively scheduled to begin to install a gas main from Chapel Street to First Street. This work is expected to continue from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each evening, Sunday through Thursday, for approximately two to three weeks.

As the work progresses, traffic will be reduced to one lane on either a portion of Main Street northbound or on Central Avenue southbound. Initially, this work will require the temporary, complete closure of Chapel Street at Main Street, and the Franklin Plaza loop. Detours will be in effect to facilitate reverse direction traffic. The Janetos Plaza will remain accessible from all driveways except the southbound, left turn at the mouth of Chapel Street.

Additionally, parking will be prohibited in the westerly spaces along Central Avenue, from Second to Third streets, for the overnight hours from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. only.

Once the work on Main Street and Central Avenue is complete, additional parking restrictions will be in place along the first block of First Street and the first 100 feet of Chapel Street.
