Detour for Franklin Street to be enforced

The excavation of Franklin Street between River Road and Russell Drive will commence today, Aug. 21, to prepare the roadway for paving. This section of Franklin Street will remain closed to through traffic. Drivers are instructed to utilize the detour route which keeps the work zone safe and allows for construction to continue.

Residents in the impacted area will be afforded reasonable access but should expect short periods where access to individual driveways may not be possible, in addition to periodic delays and other related inconveniences.

Residents are encouraged to go the City of Lebanon website at https://www.lebanonoregon,gov/gis for continuous updates regarding construction location and current road closures.

For any questions or concerns regarding this project, contact the engineering department at 541-258-4923 or [email protected].
