East Pleasant Street Paving Set for Oct. 2

The Town of Amherst has announced that East Pleasant Street between Pine Street and Eastman Lane will be closed for paving on Monday, Oct. 2.

The road will be closed to all through traffic from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

All local traffic will be directed in the northbound direction. If you live in the area you will need to exit via Pine Street and return via East Pleasant Street from the Eastman Lane end.

Some side streets and driveways will be temporarily blocked as the construction equipment passes by. Please check with the crews before attempting to cross the new pavement.  

Local traffic and busses will be accommodated. The road will be reduced to one northbound travel lane during construction. Detail officers and flaggers will be present to direct traffic.

Warner Brothers will be paving driveway aprons and installing loam and seed along the shoulders for the remainder of the week. The road will be open during these operations.
