State Route 37 Temporary Road Closure Planned for May 5th

May 4, 2022

AKWESASNE -- The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Office of Emergency Management and Safety is notifying local travelers of a temporary road closure planned for Thursday, May 5, 2022. A portion of State Route 37 will be closed in both directions from 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. from McGee Road to the St. Regis Road intersection.

The temporary road closure is to accommodate the community march that is taking place to commemorate the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. Travelers are asked to please seek an alternate during the one-hour time period.

The Three Sisters Program and the Seven Dancers Coalition are inviting individuals to join the community march that will begin at the former-TVI Parking Lot. If possible, marchers are asked to wear a red shirt, dress, or other clothing to help remember, honor, and give voice to women whose stories will never be heard. Please use the hashtag #MMIP when posting photos of your involvement in the march.

The community march will conclude at Generations Park; where there will be tobacco burning, an honor song by traditional singers, a community meal, special guest speakers, and informational booths that are aimed at bringing awareness and closure to families who have lost a loved one.

For any program or organization interested in having an informational booth at the event, please contact Crystal King at crystal.king@srmt-nsn.gov or call (518)358-4406 ext. 4003.
