West Half of Public Square Closed to Traffic

on .

On Wednesday, May, 20, Arsee Engineers, INC. will be setting up a crane to inspect the Washington County Courthouse. While they are performing this work, the West half of the Public Square will be closed to traffic. They are expected to arrive at approximately 7:30 a.m. and leave at approximately 5:00 p.m. All South bound traffic will be routed West onto West Walnut and then to South Water Street. We do expect delays and backups at these intersections due to truck traffic. Please plan ahead and avoid this area if possible.

The East half of the Public Square will remain open and there will be no alterations to North bound traffic. Do remember not to travel on the inside lane of the square, as you will not be allowed to enter the West half. Unnecessary merging could create back-ups. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, it is important we repair and maintain the most visible and recognizable symbol of our community, and appreciate your cooperation with this matter.
