Portion of State Road 340 to close

Friday, October 14, 2011

Officials with the City of Brazil announced Friday State Road 340 will be closed at Waterworks Road beginning Tuesday.

The portion of the road will be closed for approximately two weeks.

According to city officials, a new water line for the tower at Craig Park will be installed in the area, forcing the closure.

State Road 340 will be open to local traffic except at the closure. All thru traffic will have a detour established.

For further information, call 443-2221.

Can the city of Brazil come up with any other sections of roads to close during the Festival? Can't drive through the park and now can't drive down 340. They been working on this project all Summer and now need to close the road. Who is in charge of these decisions and when they should do these projects? Can these people not determain this is a busy time for our city? So lets do these projects right in the middle of it... Of course we all know the people who made the choices will not make any comments on here about their resons as to why the Festival is the right time to do this...

WOW! I really feel bad for all of those affected by the closures. It is the absolute WORST time of year to do this. Those with yard sale items should encourage the people in charge of the road closures to come and pay you what you would have made had there been the opportunity to sell the items. Or set up your displays in THEIR YARDS!!!
