If your travel plans take you to Route 56 (Paxton Street) in Leicester on Friday, April 20th plan for some extra time.
The Leicester Police Department says road work will be taking place that will require detours.
All Northbound traffic on Paxton Street (Rt. 56) will be detoured (right) on to Winslow Ave., (left) on to Hyland Ave., and then back on to Paxton Street (Rt. 56). This detour is being done to keep traffic from blocking the Winslow intersection and backing up traffic towards the center of town.
Southbound traffic on Paxton Street (Rt. 56) will be detoured (left) on to Hyland Ave., (left) on to Winslow Ave., towards Main Street/Route 9.
Traffic on Whittemore Street headed to Paxton Street will be detoured on to Washburn Street over to Rt.56. Drivers can then proceed north or south.
The police department says detours are subject to change to accommodate work that is being done in the construction zone.
