North Pleasant Street Paving Scheduled for Two Days

The Town of Amherst has scheduled crews to pave North Pleasant Street between Massachusetts Avenue and Eastman Lane from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 21 and Tuesday, Aug. 22.

This represents a change in the schedule issued by the town last week.

During paving operations, certain driveways, bus pull-offs, and crosswalks will be temporarily closed until the hot asphalt has been rolled and cools enough to accommodate traffic. The temporary closures should last 30 to 45 minutes. 

The road will be reduced to one travel lane during construction.

Detail officers will be present to direct traffic.

Drivers are advised to expect delays or use alternate routes.
