Downtown Auburn is already beginning to feel the impacts of a busy construction season, which kicked off Tuesday as work started on William Street to prepare for the Equal Rights Cultural Heritage Center.
The intersection of Lincoln and William streets is closed from Tuesday, Jan. 30 through Thursday, Feb. 1, due to construction. During that time, the driveway for Westminster Presbyterian Church will be closed and there will be no through traffic on William Street. Traveling from the south, William Street traffic will detour on Westlake Avenue to Fort Street to Genesee Street. Traveling from the north, William Street from Genesee Street to Lincoln Street will be open to local traffic only.
