Once again the road construction season is upon us, so start mapping out detour routes as 9th Street at 6th Avenue will be closed through Friday. 

According to a press release: starting today, the east bound lane of 9th Street at the intersection of 6th Avenue will be closed to allow for the patching of the pavement due to a prior water main break.On the plus side, the west bound lane will remain open to traffic.

The work will also require the closure of the right lane of north bound 6th Avenue East just below 9th Street. This closure is anticipated to take all work unless the project is finished early.

Also a heads up if you ride the bus, the DTA will detour their bus route for this project and utilize 10th Street, turn at 7th Ave East, and head down to 9th Street to continue east. Let the road construction season begin!
