Green Street will partially close due to construction

By Jose Zepeda, Assistant Daytime News Editor

A portion of Green Street between Sixth and Wright streets will close to construct a new sanitary sewer main.

The sanitary sewer main is required for the new high-rise development, which is located at 708 S. Sixth St. A new manhole will also be added at the intersection of Green and Sixth streets.

Intersections between Sixth and Green streets and Fifth and Green streets will remain open. However, eastbound traffic on Green Street must turn south onto Sixth Street instead of continuing straight.

Detours are available for traffic that needs to pass through Green Street. Westbound traffic on Green Street can turn right onto Wright Street and continue straight until Springfield Avenue, where traffic can turn left. Then, continue straight on Springfield Avenue until Fourth Street, where another left turn can be made. Lastly, continue down Fourth Street and until Green Street is reached again, where traffic can turn right and continue on a regular route. 

The construction will begin on Sept. 3 at 7 a.m. and will be completed Sept. 13 at midnight.
