CORNWALL – You will want to make plans if your commute involves taking Second Street West through the Brookdale Avenue intersection.

The city announced Thursday the intersection will be closed from Tuesday (Sept. 6) until the end of the month.

It’s to allow crews with Louis Bray Construction access to the intersection as they replace water and sewer pipes in that area.

Traffic will be detoured via Cumberland Street, Seventh Street and Hoople Avenue.

This is part of the entire reconstruction of Brookdale Avenue from Water Street to Seventh Street, which should be done by mid-December.
