Heavy Rain Forces Closing of Russell Street

State Street Pic 7-30-13Last weekend's heavy rain has forced a portion of one Russell street to be closed.

The east bound lane on State Street between the Russell Recreation Center and Amber Drive has been closed after water washed out part of the shoulder.

Crews are expected to work on the culvert and road on Friday. Both lanes of State Street will be closed during that time. 

Barring any additional heavy rain, the project should be completed in one day.
