Omaha Avenue work starts Monday

WORTHINGTON — Water main reconstruction on Omaha Avenue from Dover Street to near Miller Street is tentatively scheduled to begin Monday, according to a press release from the city of Worthington’s engineering department.

Omaha Avenue will be closed to through traffic. When possible, Omaha Avenue will be open to restricted local traffic for driveway access. Access will alternate from the Dover Street or Miller Street ends of Omaha Avenue as construction progresses from Dover Street toward Miller Street.

Weather permitting and construction proceeding as planned, Omaha Avenue pipe and pavement work should be completed and normal traffic restored in late August.

In other street construction news, pavement restoration was completed Thursday on the Nobles Street water and sewer project extending from Minnesota 60 to Woodcrest Avenue. Turf restoration remains.

Additionally, drainage structure work at Lake Street and Seventh Avenue began Tuesday. Walk work along Lake Street and Lake Avenue from near Seventh Avenue to east of May Street is scheduled to start Monday.
