Cone Zone - Construction Alert!

Beginning the week of June 13, Goodwin is overseeing the reconstruction of a portion of Ensign Street at Riverside Drive. The road will be closed for approximately two weeks. Detour signs will direct traffic through King Court to Willow Street to access Riverside Drive. Total construction period will be six to eight weeks. For those coming from Main Street, turning directly onto Willow Street is probably a preferred alternative route. Although this will be a temporary inconvenience, the new roadway and sidewalks, improved lighting, and emergency blue light towers on either side of the highway will benefit everyone. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Rich Vibberts at or 860-913-2023.
