To make transport as safe and efficient as possible, Oregon Road will be closed to thru traffic at River Road and at Brownstone Ridge, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Brownstone Ridge residents who travel down Brownstone Ridge to Oregon Road, will be directed by Meriden Police to turn Left on Oregon Road and head north towards Centennial Avenue.
