Old Towne Road Near Library Closing This Week

The Rochester Hills Public Library will still be accesible, but you'll have to take University Drive to get there.

As the Main Street Makeover in downtown Rochester continues, the work is now focused north of University Drive. This week, Old Towne Road will be closed at Rochester Road near the hub of the construction work.

Old Towne Road connects Rochester Road with University Drive; it curves around by the U.S. Post Office and the Rochester Hills Public Library. Both the Post Office and the library will be open and accessible during the closure — customers will just have to access them via University Drive.

The closure will begin at 7 a.m. Tuesday and end at 7 p.m. Friday.

The Main Street Makeover is the ongoing rebuilding of Rochester Road through downtown Rochester. For details and an official detour map, visit our Main Street Makeover page on Rochester Patch.

Oh no! What a time to close access to the Library during the fall book sale! I hope it doesn't deter people from coming. I helped set up yesterday and can't believe the number of books. FYI, the sale begins on Wednesday for Friends of the Library and Thursday morning for everyone else. The sale runs through Sunday.

The library is still totally accessible -- you just can't turn on Old Towne from Main Street to get there. The Used Book Sales are always fun; thanks for letting us know, Sandy!
