Last week I advised Kent drivers to stay away from Stow Street this week, because CSX had plans to close the street in order to make necessary rail repairs. As of today, CSX changed their plans. Stow Street will now remain open this week, but it will be closed from Tuesday, September 4th through Friday, September 7. So the week of Labor Day, you’ll need to use alternative streets. I’m sure CSX apologizes for the inconvenience.
Here’s the updated press release:
