Traffic Detour Information

Above is the traffic control map for the East Washington Street Project.  Throughout the construction process, portions of East Washington Street will be restricted to one-way traffic only to the east, as shown above. 

Drivers should remember that Franklin St and Jackson St are also one-way to the east from the Public Square to Noble St.  The decision to make the traffic on East Washington St a one-way to the east based on requests from the business owners.
