Starting Monday, Westbound College Avenue will be closed between Beech Street and Linden Street.

Eastbound College Avenue will be reduced to one lane from Oak Street to Beech Street during this time.

This closure is due to water main repairs and pavement restoration. The street is set to reopen on Friday once the repairs are finished.

Finishing the street could depend on how good the weather is during the repair and when the pavement is being restored.  

One suggested route that drivers can take is Beech Street to Willow Street to Linden Street as a detour.
