Residents of the 400 block 7th Avenue East can expect road closures and water interruptions for four to six weeks due to scheduled utility upgrades.
Work will begin August 14, closing down the section of 7th Avenue East between 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for the duration of the upgrades. The city is requesting all residents relocate vehicles parked on the street during these times. One-way traffic will be permitted in the evenings.
To enable construction, a road detour will be set up at the 300 block of 7th Avenue East, diverting traffic onto Young Street, and from the 500 block of 7th Avenue East northward onto Green Street, which will be closed to the south down to Eighth Avenue E for the majority of the construction period.
The city says there will also be temporary interruptions to the water supply of homes in the construction zone, but will be kept to a minimum. Residents will be notified with notices on the front door of the property.
Any interruptions to service and property access will be confined to regular working hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
