Bridge and Main Streets to be closed next week

Councilman Gautreau posted this on the facebook earlier today:

Notice from Phoenixville borough manager:

At our Streetscape construction meeting this morning, PennDOT, the contractor, and staff agreed that the best course of action for the intersection at Main Street and Bridge Street is to close it entirely on October 8 and 9. The grade changes needed to balance that intersection based on the new construction does not provide a safe vehicle environment. In addition, they have to install a new stormwater inlet, a new manhole and make the connections about ten feet down in the middle of Bridge. These dates may be pushed to October 9 and 10 due to possible inclement weather. The intent is for the intersection to remain closed the entire time. The goal always remains to open as soon as possible.

Essentially Bridge Street will be closed to non-local traffic between Starr Street and Gay Street. Main Street will be closed between Church Street and Mill Street.

We are notifying residents and businesses in the affected area and will be posting the electronic signs at Bridge and Starr and at Nutt and Bridge. We also expect signs to be posted at the intersection in advance of the closure.
