Utility Work to Close a Portion of South 7th Avenue

Replacement of a water line will result in the closure of South 7th Avenue between West Chestnut Avenue and West Walnut Street on Wednesday, October 7th. The work will begin at 7:00 am and should be completed by 3:30 pm.

Because of heavy traffic volumes in the area, drivers can expect delays while the project is underway. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.

As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.

For more information about the project, contact Water Distribution Supervisor Emilio Lopez at 575-6196.
