**UPDATE** During the construction, there will be NO LEFT TURN from South Lincoln onto East Pershing due to traffic backup across State Street.
Starting Monday August 6th, the intersection of East State Street and Lincoln Ave. up to Ohio Ave. will be closed for concrete street repairs. Traffic will be routed to Pershing as the detour. The contractor will be directing traffic during the project but businesses and residences will be affected with several blocks at a time being closed. State Street from Lincoln to the Salem Hospital will be completed first and will take 30 to 45 days. Followed by Pershing from Ohio to Southeast Blvd., then Southeast Blvd. from State Street to Ridgewood. The roads will not be closed at the same time. Completion of this project will take about 150 days. Please be patient and use alternate routes if you can.
