A small section of W. Horne Street in front of the Clayton Town Hall parking lot will be blocked to thru-traffic beginning today (Tuesday, May 14th). It will remain closed 24 hours a day through Thursday, May 23rd.
The closure is needed to allow for a traffic study that will help measure the impact of closing this small section of street permanently to accommodate an expanded public parking lot for Town Hall/The Clayton Center, Town Square, the Clayton Library and neighboring Horne Memorial United Methodist Church. During the temporary closure, traffic will still be able to flow through the Town Hall parking lot.
Results of the traffic study will be shared with the public at an upcoming Town Council meeting in June. A vote scheduled for the Planning Board Meeting on May 28th at 6 p.m. has been postponed until the traffic study results can be examined.
