FYI:
To: Amherst Residents

North Main Street is closed to through traffic between Martin Street (East and West) and Sunrise Drive for about the next 60 days. Actual reopening will be dependent upon the weather. Also affected are side streets – Rainbow Drive, Brandt Avenue, Sipple Avenue; there is no through access between Lincoln Street and North Main Street from those three streets. Local access for residents who live on those streets is maintained. The detour directs traffic onto Lincoln Street.

If you’d like a 2019 refrigerator magnet with the Republic Services monthly bulk item waste pickup schedule, send me a return email with your street address. I’ll get it into the mail to you right away.

Please share this email with others who may need this information. If you wish to receive these emails directly or have your name removed from this list, send me an email. I will do as you request.
