HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Harrisonburg City Public Works will begin work on the installation of a trial half-street closure on East Bruce Street through the Old Town neighborhood’s enrollment in the Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program starting on Wednesday.

The lane closures will be put in place on a trial basis, so people can evaluate the traffic patterns.

The closure will limit traffic on East Bruce Street at its intersection with Ott Street. The half closure will restrict straight travel through on East Bruce Street, across Ott Street, and will also prevent left and right turns on to East Bruce Street from Ott Street.

Vehicles driving towards Ott Street, from East Bruce Street will have to turn left or right onto Ott Street and will not be allowed to go straight.

People should look at other routes such as Mason Street, Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, Market Street, and Reservoir Street.
