Washington Street Lane Closures Begin Week of November 6

Southbound lane closures between Jefferson and Benton avenues in effect for one week

Work to construct a new water service connection for a property along Washington Street is scheduled to begin Monday, November 6, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances. Due to the nature of the work, lane and sidewalk closures on Washington Street will be in effect throughout the project, which is expected to last approximately one week. 

Beginning Monday, November 6, the two southbound lanes of Washington Street will be closed to traffic between Jefferson Avenue and Benton Avenue. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction and shifted into the two northbound lanes to maintain two-way traffic throughout construction. Closures will be in place Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Work is expected to be complete by Friday, November 10. Motorists should use caution in this area and are encouraged to find alternate routes as necessary.

For the safety of pedestrians, the sidewalk on the west side of Washington Street will be closed between Van Buren Avenue and Benton Avenue. In addition, normal parking restrictions along Washington Street will be extended to restrict parking on both sides of Washington Street from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout the duration of the project.
