ROAD CLOSURE UPDATE- July 5, 2017
Beginning Wednesday, July 5, and continuing through the end of July, Main Street will be closed to through-traffic from Seventh Street to Fifth Street for work being performed in conjunction with the Downtown Utility & Streetscape Project.

Appalachian Power Company will also take advantage of the closure by connecting new cables for the Holiday Inn hotel.

The hotel parking garage will be accessible via Church Street entrance only. The Main Street entrance will not be accessible for the duration of the work.
