Strong Alley to Close Monday for Drainage Improvements

Posted: 10/21/2016
Strong Alley will close Monday, Oct. 24, for drainage improvements scheduled to last through the winter. The alley runs behind the east side of Market Square, parallel to Gay Street, between Union and Wall avenues.

Adams & Sons, Inc. has been contracted for the $1 million Neighborhood Drainage Improvements Project, through which the Strong Alley drainage work is funded. The alley will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic for the duration of the project.

Following completion of the drainage improvements, there are plans to make enhancements to Strong Alley, which include decorative lighting.
