The following closures will last 24 hours a day beginning on Wednesday, August 4:

  • Southbound Bloomingrove Drive at Route 4 (Cumberland Farms) will remain closed for the next two (2) weeks and re-open once the new traffic signal is installed;
  • Bloomingrove Drive at Williams Road will be closed for the next six (6) weeks. Local traffic only will be allowed on Bloomingrove Drive, and motorists are urged to use Winter Street Extension for access to Bloomingove Drive during this time and to pay close attention to all traffic signage.
