Water Street, between Market and Princess streets, will be closed to southbound traffic beginning Monday, April 22 at 5 p.m. and lasting up to two weeks while crews make emergency repairs to the road and the supporting structure beneath it.
Vehicles approaching from Market Street will be able to turn right and proceed north on Water Street, but the traffic will be one-way. This pattern will remain in effect overnight, but the road will open to two-way traffic over the weekend. Both the Market and Princess Street intersections will remain open.
These repairs are needed to stabilize this portion of Water Street until the major bulkhead improvements begin in early 2014. These repairs are funded from the city's 5 year infrastructure improvement plan
