Lake Street to close for two years beginning Friday
Drivers may need to take an alternate route starting Friday if Lake Street is within their travels.
Lake Street will be closed at the railroad crossing between Commerce Street and the Sci-Port Discovery Center on Friday, March 6. The crossing will be closed for two years while the City works on a design and construction of a “Quiet Zone” project. The Zone will allow trains to cross Lake Street without having to give an audible warning to vehicles.
The cost of the improvements will be jointly shared between public and private donations.
