Independence to be reduced for weeks

The eastbound lane of Independence Street between Sprigg Street and Lorimier Street is closed for three to four weeks as Fronabarger Concreters of Oak Ridge works on the sidewalks, curbs and gutters. Traffic will be rerouted to Themis Street during the work, which is being funded by the city's Transportation Trust Fund sales tax. Westbound lanes and local businesses will remain open. When the work on the eastbound lanes is complete, Fronabarger will work on the westbound lanes. The project includes similar work to be done later on Independence Street from Lorimier Street to Main Street. The street will also be resurfaced with a new layer of asphalt.
