HARRISONBURG-- Portions of Kelley St. will be closed this week due to construction continuing on the city's new transportation center.
The closings will be only during the day, and the roads will reopen at night. The closures will be from Hill St. to Tower St., and are for large equipment. They will be periodic, and not for the entire day.
Construction is progressing on the city's new transportation center, a $14 million project. The center will house the Dept. of Transportation.
While the closures could be bothersome to neighbors, one said she wouldn't mind. "It's an inconvenience when we're trying to travel, but for the most part, they're trying to build up the community, and everybody who lives here, that's what we want to see happen," said Tabatha Hopkins. "I just want the overall perception of this community to just be raised, and for them to not see it in such a negative light."
Neighbors will be able to access their driveways during the closures.
