Road reopened after culvert work

Motorists who had been avoiding Depot Road, near the Twiss Lane intersection, can resume their normal travel routes.

Police reopened the road Tuesday evening, after closing the road over the weekend, following flooding resulting from Tropical Storm Hanna.

Motorists had been detoured to Dow Road via Twiss and Jewett lanes after heavy rains overtook a culvert at the bridge construction site there. The reopening comes on the heels of an assessment by state Department of Transportation officials and Virgin Construction, the company doing the bridge work.
