Ireland Street is closed to through traffic from Route 143 to Route 112 because of bridge construction.

Google Maps doesn’t seem to know about the bridge, but it does generally offer non-Ireland Street routes for you to choose.  Basically, you now go through Worthington center to get to and from the studio locations south/west of Rte 143 (Nakayama and Shapiro studios in Worthington; Heidinger and Taylor in Westhampton) and those north/east of 143 (Talbot in Windsor; Knox, Smith, and Project Art in Cummington; Machin in Ashfield).  The Worthington studios are also easily accessible as usual from Westhampton, via Routes 66 and 112. 

There will be plenty of signs to help you along the route! Here is the location of the bridge that is closed.
