CHRISTMAS PARADE DETOURS

The Berlin Police Department advises motorists planning to attend tonight's Christmas Parade of Lights that traffic heading north on Route 16 will be diverted to the Cleveland Bridge today, beginning at 6 p.m. The Mason Street bridge will also be closed for about an hour once the parade starts heading up Main Street. Southbound traffic lanes on Pleasant Street will be closed for approximately one half hour once the parade reaches the bowling alley and starts heading south. There will be no parking this year at the Tondreau parking lot behind city hall throughout the day until the time the parade begins at 7 p.m.
