Arlington Takes Steps To Deal With Main Street Closure

7/17/18 – 5:15 A.M.

Arlington is making some moves to deal with the reconstruction of part of U.S. 68 in the village. Council agreed on Monday to install speed bumps on Mill and Park streets. The roads are in the village park and also serve as a way around the Main Street closure.

The fire and EMS departments are putting equipment on both sides of the construction zone so they can quickly respond to emergencies.

Councilman Brian Essinger also told residents they can’t remove bricks, asphalt, and other materials from the road work sites.

The reconstruction project has U.S. 68 closed between Liberty and Vail streets. The highway doubles as Main Street in Arlington.
