Twelfth Street between Osage and Adams Central avenues between Hastings and Juniata will be closed to traffic during the day Friday and Saturday for an asphalt paving project.
Dawn Miller, Adams County highway superintendent, said work in the one-mile stretch is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. Friday and continue throughout the day. The street then will be open in the evening and overnight before closing again Saturday morning.
The work is expected to be done by the end of the day Saturday, and the street then will reopen, Miller said.
A detour route for through traffic on 12th Street will be marked for the time when the road is closed. The detour will carry traffic south to DLD Road on Osage and Adams Central avenues.
Miller said she’s sorry for the late notice of the impending closure, but that the Adams County Roads Department was able to get a contractor on site at the last minute to get the needed work done before winter.
Miller predicted motorists will appreciate the improvement to the road once the paving is complete.
