Over-sized vehicles approaching from Mt. Wayte will also be detoured down Franklin Street and onto Melrose Street to access Union Avenue. Two-way local traffic traveling between Main Street and the Christopher T. Garrahan Memorial Bridge crossing the Sudbury River will be maintained.

The City requests that motorists do not cut through residential side streets or parking lots to circumvent the detour; that type of activity can create traffic issues and unsafe situations for pedestrians.
