As they are completing the construction, the intersection of 10th & Evans will close periodically.  You may need to use Charles and Read Circle to come around to us on Evans Street.

10th Street is closed between Evans St and Dickinson.  However, you can still make it through for MAEC!  It looks confusing with road closure and detour signs, but no worries!

 See you at MAEC!
