Lane Closure and Detour Information
The on-ramp to Route 348 SB from Bridge Street will be closed starting on May 29, 2018, and for the duration of the Route 349 SB bridge construction. There will be detour routes marked with orange signs along Route 1 (Long Hill Road) to the east end of Meridian Street.
