MVHS officials say the buildings to be demolished are close enough to the road to potentially pose a risk, so the street will be closed to ensure everyone’s safety.

Motorists will be directed to travel south on Cornelia Street, east on Court Street and north on Broadway.

Detour signs will be posted.
