Seymour makes rain changes to bypass celebration

Because of expected rain, Seymour is changing up a Sunday event to celebrate the new Burkhart Boulevard railroad overpass.

City officials say you can come anytime between noon and 3 p.m. to walk, jog, run or ride a bike on the 2-mile stretch of road beginning at the roundabout. The planned parking area will be changing. It now will be along the dead end road leading west from the roundabout on South O’Brien Street near Silgan Plastics.

The Fraternal Order of Police will be grilling hot dogs near the 1-mile mark of the route and will have bottled water, Halloween candy and a limited amount of cookies from Laura Jo’s Cookies available.

The bypass will open to vehicles after a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. Monday morning.
