Portions of Main Street in downtown Murphys will be closed to traffic today to remove some damaged trees as a result of the current storm. Road crews are expecting the work to take 2-3 hours. Through traffic will be required to find alternate routes.

There is storm damage throughout the County, including many downed trees. Crews are doing the best they can to get them cleaned up while also dealing with snow at higher elevations and windy conditions here at lower elevations. Please be patient while they work to get the street open.
