Two City water projects require partial road closures

Effective Monday, July 16 at 9 a.m., there will be two partial road closures in the downtown area:

  1. The westbound lanes and one eastbound lane along the 900 block of 3 Avenue South will be closed so crews can upgrade watermain lines. Work is expected to be complete by Thursday, July 19, weather permitting.

  2. The intersection at 8 Street South and 5 Avenue South and lanes along the 400 block of 8 Street South will be closed intermittently so crews can continue to work on the 5 Avenue South watermain renewal project. Parking in this area may be reduced to allow for construction. Work is expected to be complete by mid-August.
    The full project schedule, detour routes and a parking map is available at

Motorists are advised to drive with caution in these areas and follow posted detours.
