Travel Route and Road Closures

To facilitate the move of the house from Chapel Rd to its new home, various roads in the Easton area will be temporarily closed or re-routed on an rolling basis during the course of the move.  In order to minimize impact to the community, the house will move only during the overnight hours. The information below reflects the current plan for the move; however, dates are subject to change in light of weather or other events. This page will be kept current with the most accurate version of the move plan.
