Drivers are advised that Canal Street west of U.S. 1 will be closed to through traffic nightly from 10 p.m. – 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 16, through Monday, Sept. 30. The closure is necessary to install new storm drains across Canal Street.
During the closure, electronic message boards and other signage will be used to direct traffic using the following detour routes:
- Drivers traveling west on Canal Street will need to turn right onto U.S. 1, turn left onto Washington Street, turn left onto North Myrtle Avenue, and turn left onto Canal Street.
