UPDATE: Local streets closed by sewer work

— Hawkins Groundwork will have Clinton Street, between Hobbs and Market streets, closed for one more week (the week of March 10) as part of the downtown/historic area sewer replacement project.

When completed, the contractor expects to move to the Market and Beaty streets intersection the week of March 24 and have that area closed.

City officials said various downtown and historic street areas would be affected for the next several months as old clay sewer pipes are replaced.

In another area of the city, the Wastewater Department will close Hine Street all day today, between Washington Street and Westmoreland Avenue, to repair a sewer main. Motorists will have to use other routes, officials said.
