Due to construction activities planned along South Main Street, the portion of the Hawthorne Trail between Depot Avenue and Veitch Street will be temporarily closed beginning today. Rail trail users can follow the posted detour signs to safely navigate the construction zone. The trail is expected to reopen in May.
Equipment is mobilized and the MOT (maintenance of traffic) is set up for the project. Large trenches are being dug for the primary electric on the west side of the street and demolition has begun on the east side of the street in front of the Cade Museum.
