Boulevard Closing

At the request of the First United Methodist Church, the City Council voted 5-3 to close the entrance to Boulevard from S. Broad Street. Please keep in mind the portion of Boulevard East of the Church will now be a dead end. Please refrain from turning off Waverly which runs at the back of the Church onto this section of Boulevard, as an exit on to S. Broad Street is no longer available.
