Walcott Street Open to Two-Way Traffic During Main Street Corridor Eastbound Detour

By contributor,

Due to the planned eastbound detour on Main Street for work on the Main Street Corridor Project beginning on Tuesday, June 21 and continuing through Friday, June 24, Walcott Street will be open to two-way traffic during that time period to allow access via Cedar Street.

“The shift to two-way traffic on Walcott Street has been implemented to support access to businesses and residents while work is occurring on Main Street,” said DPW Director John Westerling.

Eastbound traffic will be detoured up Grove Street, across Maple Street and back to Main Street via Hayden Rowe. Westbound traffic on Main Street will remain open. Parking spaces on the south side of Main Street may be impacted, but access to businesses will be maintained. Detail officers will be on-site to assist with traffic flow.

The detour will remain in place during daytime working hours only. Main Street will be opened up at the end of each workday to at least one lane with alternating traffic. At that time, Walcott Street will revert back to one-way traffic.
