Cruise Nights to begin in Morenci 2014.04.30

Morenci Area Chamber of Commerce members received a green light from city council Monday to close down a portion of Main Street four times this year for a cruise night.

Main Street west from the stop light to the fire station would be closed to through traffic on the evening of May 29, July 25, August 29 and possibly Sept. 25. An overflow of cars would lead to the use of the alley on the west side of the library.

The street will be closed from 5 to 8 p.m., with the event slated to begin at 6 p.m.

Traffic would be routed along Locust Street onto Mill Street, said police officer Don Thompson. Truck traffic would be directed to take East Street.

A fifth cruise event would take place June 21 during the Town and Country Festival in the parking lot of the former M&S Corporation building. Additional information can be obtained from Jack Still by calling 810/730-6708.
