9th & G – F, 70th & A Streets to close Wednesday

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News


Southbound 9th Street between “G” and “F” Streets will be closed from 9 a.m., Wednesday, July 6 to Friday, July 15 for Sanitary Sewer System improvements.

The work will include rehabilitation of deteriorated clay pipe, and the replacement of a structurally deficient manhole.

Department officials said that closing the street completely will allow the project to be completed faster.  During construction, southbound traffic will detour to “K” Street, 13th Street, and South Street.  Only local traffic will be permitted south of “K”.

The other project is at “A” Street, which will be closed at 70th Street, beginning July 6, as part of the 70th Street Paving Repair Project.

One traffic lane will be maintained for northbound and southbound 70th Street.  Open lanes will shift from the inside to outside lanes during the closure.

No access between “A” Street and 70th Street will be allowed.  Access to all local businesses will be open off of 70th Street and off of “A” Street.

The detour route for “A” Street will be north from “A” Street to “O” Street at 56th Street and at 84th Street.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by July 9.
