A major improvement for motorists is coming to downtown Auburn.
The City announced that a major access road is closing for most of October as it gets repaved.
John Street, which runs from the Arterial to East Genesee Street will close October 4, and likely remain closed until the end of the month.
It’s part of an $850,000 project supported by $1.54 million in grant funding to overhaul the roadway.
New storm sewers, sidewalks, and curbs will be placed on the road, too.
Traffic will be prompted to use North Street as a detour.
“This investment in the east side of our downtown is long overdue, Auburn Mayor Michael Quill said. “We will be improving or installing the infrastructure underneath the streets, as well as, giving each street a much needed repaving. It will be a challenging short term inconvenience, however, in the end we will have an improved East Hill and John Street area for years to come.”
