*****ROAD CLOSURE*****

These photos are from an accident that just occurred on Main Street. Currently the road is closed due to pole replacement. You will need to find an alternate route... Accident happened in front of 186 Main Street, if you live at number 186 Main Street or lower follow the first set of directions if you are coming EASTBOUND on Main Street. If you live at a house number higher than 186 Main Street and are heading WESTBOUND on Main Street follow the second set of directions.

If you are heading EAST on Main Street, reroute and take Summerhill Road NORTH and turn right onto Old Stage heading EAST. Make a right onto Cleveland Avenue and that will take you back to Main Street.

If you are heading WEST on Main Street make a right onto Cleveland Avenue and then a left onto Old Stage Road heading WEST. Make a left onto Summerhill Road heading SOUTH and that will take you to Main Street.

Hopefully this helps as much as possible. Be safe and use caution while driving.

We will give updates as the repairs progress.
