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.
