West Birch Avenue will be closed to through traffic between the Wilson Park alley and North First Street from 4 to 10 p.m. today for the Summer Solstice Celebration.

This closure will help to ensure safety for pedestrians crossing between Wilson Park and the old hospital lot to the north, where there will be kickball games. One of the event’s food vendors also will set up along Birch Avenue, just to the north of Wilson Park.
