HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – The collapse of a multi-story section of the former Essex House hotel on High Street has not only caused the evacuation of homes and businesses, but it is also causing detours in downtown Holyoke.
High Street is closed to all vehicles and pedestrians from Essex Street to Appleton Street. Newton Street, which runs parallel to High Street, is also closed until further notice.
Drivers hoping to go north on High Street will have to detour onto Cabot Street, and then take Beech Street to Appleton Street before rejoining High Street.
