For Immediate Release

Cherry Street Closure East of Glenstone

Cherry Street will be closed between Glenstone and Grandview avenues beginning Monday, June 15, 2009, to complete a project to widen the street and make additional improvements.

This section of Cherry is expected to be closed until Aug. 22, 2009. Motorists are advised to use marked detours via Barnes Avenue, Grand Street and Glenstone.

The project will include widening 1,290 linear feet on that portion of Cherry Street along with adding curb and gutter, storm sewers and sidewalks. The goal is to provide a safer and more efficient traffic flow for pedestrians and motorists.

The $678,644 project is funded by the ¼-cent sales tax for capital improvements.
