Lockport Street Through Downtown Plainfield Closed Starting Today

Route 59 near downtown Plainfield isn’t all that fun to drive on a normal day. This will not help.

Lockport Street through downtown Plainfield (between Route 126/Main St. and Route 59) will be closed “to accommodate concrete, asphalt, and brick reconstruction work within the roadway as part of the Village’s Streetscape Refresh project.”

Expect there to be delays for a while! The Village of Plainfield doesn’t expect the downtown area’s main thoroughfare to be open again until Friday, May 21st.

If you need to get from one side of downtown to the other, you are asked to use Route 126 as indicated in yellow in the graphic above…but yeah, don’t expect it to be a quick ride!

It’s important to note that all side streets and businesses will remain open, so consider helping them out as those shops will inevitably lose significant business because of the closure.
