Road Closed - Savidge Street
The Lilley Mansion in the Village of Spring Lake will be moving from Rachel's Way to the corner of Exchange St and Division St. The home will be moved via Savidge St to Division St, then to its final location. In preparation, trees will be trimmed along Savidge St on Monday, August 5, with lane closings beginning at 9am.

Closing of Savidge St will begin at 7:30pm on August 6 for the move. The road will be open at 10pm. The closings will start at Prospect St and work west to Division. All traffic will be rerouted to Exchange St. There will be no parking on Exchange St and Savidge St during the time of the move. The rain date is August 7.

The house will move at a walking pace with electrical and tree crews leading the move. For the safety of all, please watch the move from BEHIND the sidewalk. Please do not enter Alden Place to view the move or park your car - the streets are too narrow for spectators. Any needed emergency notifications will be sent via Nixle. Sign up at

Restoration will begin once the house is placed on its new foundation.
