Final Remediation Begins at the Percheron Park Site!!
Heavy excavation set for Sept. 16th through 27th 2019
Remediation on the future site of Percheron Park will begin (continues) on Monday, Sept. 16, Moorestown police announced. Drivers should expect delays on Main Street in the vicinity of High Street while work is being done from Sept. 16-27.
High Street north, toward Main Street from Prospect Avenue, will be closed to traffic. High Street south will be open, but there will be no parking permitted on that side of the street to assist the flow of traffic.
Due to the proximity of the heavy equipment working onsite, the sidewalks adjoining the site will be closed until the completion of the project. Drivers should watch for workers in the area. Police will be on location to assist with traffic.
