7th Street is currently closed to traffic between 5th and 6th avenues for the first stage of the 8th Street Drainage improvements.

Stevens Avenue is also shut to traffic from behind Maloney’s to Eighth Street.

Some time in mid-November, one block of 6th Avenue will be converted to two-way traffic between 6th and 7th Street. What traffic control will be put in place for the two-week restriping process has not been determined, said Heidi Lasham, project manager for the 8th Street Drainage project.
