Idylwyld Drive South southbound lanes at 8th Street will be closed Sunday (July 8) from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. All southbound traffic must use the 8th Street exit ramp. Detour signs will be in place to direct traffic.

First Avenue North will be closed from 26th Street East to Queen Street on Saturday and Sunday (July 7 and 8) from 5:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The intersection at Avenue H and 29th Street will be closed because of watermain replacement work for approximately two weeks starting Saturday (July 7) at 9 a.m.
