Monday, September 12, through Friday, September 16, Sears Lane will be reduced to one lane with alternating one-way traffic between Pine Street and Kaigle’s Service Center between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Sears Lane will be reopened to two lanes with two-way traffic between 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Flaggers will be present to assist travelers through the work zone. Driveway access will be maintained.

Crews will continue working on the outflow structures from the stormwater detention pond to Englesby Brook and prepping for the installation of the box culvert.
