300 Block of South Townsend to close Wednesday Morning

Due to the Collins Block Memorial Service, scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Wed., Feb. 3, the 300 block of South Townsend Street, between East Fayette and East Genesee Streets, will be closed from approximately 9:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.

The Collins Block Memorial Service is held in honor of the nine firefighters who lost their lives in the 1939 Collins Block fire, a 5-story building that collapsed shortly after being brought under control in 1939, as well as the 36 firefighters who have fallen serving the citizens of this community.

North-south traffic through this area can use South State Street, which is one block west of Townsend Street.
