A long stretch of the right lane along the southbound side of Main Street in front of Keene State College is blocked off as work to increase safety in the crossings gets underway Thursday morning. Lower Main Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction, starting with traffic in the outer lanes and moving to the inner lanes as the project progresses to the outer edges of the roadway, city engineer Don Lussier said. He said delays are expected to be “minimal.”
