Red House Road Traffic Detour for Waterline Installation
  1. The portion of Red House Road between Church Street and Hunter Street is closed to thru traffic for waterline installation for the next several weeks.
  2. A recommended alternate route is to take Lee-Grant Avenue headed east then turn south onto Dogwood Street.
  3. Follow Dogwood Street to Evergreen Avenue.
  4. This is probably the easiest route if you need to get to the high school.
Reminder that tractor trailers should always use the designated truck route on Redfields Road.
