Posted: Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 11:11am

If Smothers Road is your regular route to Curtain Players, please note that Smothers is closed at the Red Bank/Schott Road intersection through October 2018 for the installation of a roundabout. Smothers, crossing Hoover Reservoir, will be closed to local traffic only. If coming from Sunbury Road, you will need to connect to Harlem Rd. via Central College from the south or Red Bank / Center Village from the north.

If using GPS navigation, please double-check that your GPS is updated and that you're not using Smothers Road during this construction project. Here are some direction options to consider during construction:
