Broadway will be closed for sewer work

SARANAC LAKE – The village will close Broadway to traffic from 6 p.m. tonight to 6 a.m. Thursday for the installation of a new trunk sewer line, village officials announced today.

The new line will be installed across Broadway from Community Bank to Dorsey Street.

Traffic barriers will be set up at the intersection of Broadway and Olive Street. All traffic will be detoured onto Olive Street.

Dorsey Street will also be closed for the same time period between the municipal parking lot and Broadway, except for local traffic. Broadway between Woodruff Street and Main Street will be open to local traffic only.

The village parking lot next to Berkeley Green is open and will remain open for parking for all downtown businesses.

The traveling public is strongly urged to use alternate routes to get to their destination to avoid downtown Broadway due to this detour.

The village and its Department of Public Works thanked the public for its patience as work on the project continues.
