June 24, 2014 – Starting Thursday, June 26, motorists will notice a traffic shift change for the East Ashman Street / Washington Street road project currently in progress. The project involves reconstructing the roadway on East Ashman Street from Cambridge to Swede, and on Washington Street from East Ashman to Eastlawn.
Beginning Thursday, work will be performed on the north side of Ashman and on the west side of Washington. East Ashman will be closed to westbound traffic, but one lane will remain open for eastbound motorists. Washington Street will be closed to southbound traffic but remain open for one-way traffic traveling north. Detours will be posted routing motorists around the area.
Work is expected to be completed by late July.
