Chief Colaneri said that safety is the reason for all the new road closures.

"Ottawa is being closed for safety reasons as it is is a narrow street and we are trying to limit traffic near Lincoln School," he said. "Burton Avenue closure is also for safety reasons to create a one block buffer from traffic heading toward the front of Lincoln School, especially when children are outside playing during lunch."
