Bluemont Avenue will be closed at the southside of the intersection with North Manhattan Avenue for installation of a new storm sewer in the area.

Eastbound traffic on Anderson/Bluemont Avenue will be detoured south on 14th Street towards Poyntz Avenue, except for those planning to turn left (north) onto North Manhattan Avenue. (The left turn lane will remain open to those drivers.)

Southbound traffic on North Manhattan Avenue planning to turn east onto Bluemont instead will be detoured onto Vattier Street.

Westbound traffic on Bluemont Avenue will not be affected by this closure.  

Access to the alley south of Bluemont will be via Little Moro. The alley will be designated as one-way only eastbound during this one-day closure period.

Watch for signs marking the detours around the area while crews complete this project.

The project is expected to be completed by Thursday evening.
