Construction to upgrade the storm drainage in Downtown Frederick begins this week. Closures will take place block by block over the next few months until the project is completed. Beginning Tuesday September 18th, 5th Street will be closed from Main Street to Elm Street and Main Street will be closed from 5th Street to 4th Street. The farmers market is cancelled this week due to the proximity of the construction. All of your favorite Downtown businesses can still be accessed by detouring to 6th Street. On Saturday September 22nd, milling of the middle of the road will take place along 5th Street from Locust Street to Elm Street. This area will still be driveable, but please use caution as flaggers will be present during this work. Read more information about this project, including schedule and detour routes.
