Weather conditions did not allow for paving that the state had planned this week on Route 111 in Monroe. The Department of Transportation bumped the work to next week, starting Tuesday. Work is planned from 7am-5pm each day. Drivers are cautioned to expect delays and lane closures on Route 111 from the area of the roundabout to Masuk High School. Due to the uncertain weather forecast next week, schedules are subject to change.
The state Department of Transportation is going to replace two culverts in Monroe and raise the road on Route 25. The contractor will conduct a complete closure, currently scheduled from August 3rd at 8pm through Monday August 6th at 6am.
While traffic will be detoured onto Pepper Street and Old Newtown Road, truck traffic will not be permitted on local roads. Trucks will be detoured to Routes 111 and 34. This is the first of three weekend closures planned this year. Additional dates have not yet been finalized. Access to all local businesses will remain during the road shutdown. Due to the uncertain weather forecast next week, schedules are subject to change.
