The closure is necessary as contractors will be working on the utilities. Accesses to residences and businesses will be maintained with passage for local traffic to Bowles and Michigan Streets and Eden Street.

Businesses down on the end of Cottage Street near Eden Street may be accessed, down Cottage Street. There are barricades on Cottage Street making it an effective dead end street temporarily.
