This event will close East First Street between Monroe and Macomb Streets and Washington Street between Second and Front Streets during the event. There is no posted detour.
Al’s Asphalt will be replacing some roadway patches in asphalt pavements City-wide in locations where utility digs have occurred within the past year. Most of these locations are on local streets with minor impacts. However, where they occur on major streets, there may be some spot lane closures during construction. The most prominent of these is within the roadway at Elm and Macomb Streets, in which case there may be lane shifts and / or detours on the day of construction. Work is expected to last for a week or two, depending on weather conditions and asphalt availability.
