The following detours will be in place:
- Westbound traffic on Route. 9 will be directed to turn right onto N. Main Street (Route 27) and then travel westerly on Commonwealth Ave. ( Route. 30) to Speen Street in order to access Route 9 westbound.
- Eastbound traffic will be detoured at Speen Street and directed to head easterly on W. Central Street (Route 135) back to N. Main Street (Route 27) back to Route 9 eastbound.
