By Michelle Murdock, Freelance Writer

As the downtown water main project continues, a secoind Main Street detour will go into effect starting this Thursday, August 8th. All eastbound Main Street traffic will be detoured onto Pleasant Street. Westbound traffic will not be detoured on will flow onto Main Street.

Police Officers will be assisting motorists. Detour signs will be posted so motorists are able to drive to the downtown businesses which will remain open during the detour.

The detour is necessary to complete the building water service transfers from 66 to 96 Main Street. These are the long side services which require crossing the Main Streeet roadway.

The detour is expected to be in effect for approximately seven business days through August 15 and will be from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM each day. Drivers are urged to seek alternate routes where possible.
