Roadblock Monday on Canal Street in Salem

SALEM — A roadblock will be set up Monday on Canal Street at the intersection of Ocean Avenue for a drainage project.

For the next three weeks, the street will be blocked at that intersection on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Traffic will be detoured up side streets and around the closure.

All businesses on Canal Street will remain open during construction.

The closure is necessary because the deepest part of a drainage project is being done in that section of the roadway, an official said. The road barriers will be removed every weekday after 3:30 p.m. Canal Street will be open to through traffic as usual on weekends and holidays.

This first phase of a Canal Street drainage project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year with no other road closures.
