Traffic on South Boulevard will be reduced to one lane, each direction, beginning on Monday, Feb. 5 at 6:00 a.m.
The partial road closure between 8th Street and 12th Street is necessary for the installation of a water main across the two northbound lanes of South Boulevard.
Barring unforeseen conditions, the construction will be complete by 5:00 p.m. on Feb. 9.
No interruptions in utility service are anticipated. Notice will be made to area property owners if interruptions become necessary.
Northbound traffic will be diverted to a single lane beginning at 12th Street. Southbound traffic will be diverted to a single lane beginning at 8th Street. Traffic controls will be in place to guide traffic.
Access will be maintained, but controlled to the Common Cents property. Access from 10th Street will be maintained; however, wait times may increase due to the reduction in traffic lanes on South Boulevard.
