Paving work to resume on Old Main

Old Main Street will be closed from Southeast 10th Street to the Slate Creek bridge beginning Wednesday, Feb. 26 for repaving, weather permitting.

Traffic will be northbound only on Old Main from Southeast 14th to Southeast 10th, and eastbound only on Southeast 10th from Old Main to the east. The north half of the 10th Street intersection will be closed to traffic.

The work will take about two weeks, weather permitting. Then the contractor, Cornejo & Sons, will begin work south of 10th Street.

Residents in the affected blocks will have to park on side streets and walk in. On trash/recycle collection days, residents should put out containers by 7 a.m. as usual and City crews will walk in to collect materials.

Families accessing South Breeze Elementary and Newton Bible Christian School will need to enter from the south on Old Main and exit to the east on 10th.
