Geneva High School students will celebrate Homecoming this weekend with their traditional parade Friday, Oct. 10, which will require several streets be closed for motorists.
State Street (Route 38) between Third and Ninth streets, will be shut down at 2 p.m. to accommodate the event. All streets listed on the parade route also will be closed to traffic:
• Geneva High School/Stevens Street east to Anderson Boulevard;
• Anderson south to State Street;
• State east to Third Street;
• Third north to Stevens Street; and
• Stevens west to the High School.
A detour route will direct motorists traveling eastbound on State Street to turn south on Ninth Street, east on James Street, north on Third Street and back east on State Street. The directions will be reversed for westbound traffic.
There will be numerous police officers providing traffic control, so please use caution when driving through the downtown. The streets are expected to be reopened to drivers by 3:15 p.m.
