Temporary Lane Closures on Portion of Fifth Street (Beginning Sept. 26)

September 23, 2022

Beginning Monday, September 26, and continuing for approximately two weeks, one lane of Fifth Street (between Main and Commerce Streets) will be closed to accommodate bridge work in conjunction with water line replacement activities. The initial work will close the right lane approaching Commerce Street. Following completion of that work, the lane closure will shift to the left lane. Each lane closure will last approximately one week.

In addition, vehicles are encouraged to avoid heading eastbound on Commerce Street (from Fifth Street) as intermittent construction activities continue in the area of Seventh and Commerce Streets. Local traffic to Cliff’s Edge Lofts and U.S. Pipe can continue to access those locations from Fifth Street. Access to businesses and parking lots in the 700 and 800 blocks of Commerce Street will be maintained from the Ninth Street direction. 

Motorists should be alert to shifting traffic patterns and obey all posted signage. 

Emergency vehicles will have access at all times in these areas.
