Daniells Bridge Road To Be Closed On Saturday For Sewer Line Construction Project

***Crane Needed To Lift Base Of Reservoir In Place***

Daniells Bridge Road will be closed to through traffic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday for construction at the bridge over Barber Creek of the terminus of a new sewer line.

The construction on Saturday is unrelated to the ongoing construction along Daniells Bridge Road of a new gas line. That construction has resulted in periodic one-way traffic on the road.

On Saturday, barricades will be set up at Natalie Drive/Birchmore Drive on the north and Downs Creek subdivision on the south, and no traffic will be allowed beyond those points during the construction hours.
