Ninth Avenue from Winifred Street to Eighth Avenue;

E. Ninth Avenue from 10th Street to 11th Street;

Smith Avenue from Clary Street to north 430feet; and

Third Avenue from 11th Street to 12th Street (This work will be done after 5:15 p.m.)

Weather permitting and construction proceeding as planned, a majority of the street work should be completed in approximately one week.

Each street location will be closed to traffic on a block per block basis during construction activities.
