Town to assist State Theatre during marquee installation

Workers contracted by the State Theatre Foundation will install the historic marquee at the State Theatre on Tuesday and Wednesday. Town public works and police department employees will assist with traffic control during this process.

Traffic patterns will change on Tuesday and Wednesday to facilitate the installation, particularly in the 300 block of South Main Street, where a crane will lift the restored marquee from a flatbed truck and hoist it into place at the front of the theatre.

Officials plan to allow two-way traffic both north and south on Main Street, though on-street parking in the area will be restricted. Workers may have to halt traffic in both directions briefly as the crane lifts the marquee off the truck, if public safety concerns necessitate it.

Parking along the 300 block of South Main Street will be prohibited to allow for traffic lane shifting.

The crane will be located in front of the theatre, and the area in front of the theatre will be clearly marked and barricaded off. Electronic message boards along Main Street will advise motorists of the change in traffic pattern ahead to allow them to take alternate routes.

“The Town is committed to minimizing the inconvenience to the public as much as possible”, states Mayor Chip Coleman.
