+ Orange Avenue to temporarily close
Orange Avenue between 10th Way and 12th Street was closed Monday, Oct. 29, and will remain temporarily closed for a drainage improvement project until Friday, Dec. 21. 

As part of the project, a water line will be replaced under the railroad tracks at 11th Street, requiring the closure. Motorists should follow the detour signs.

“We’re rebuilding the road from 10th to 19th, putting in new sidewalk, new pavement, curb and stormwater inlets,” said Tony Russo, project manager with the city.

Work should be completed by Dec. 21, or sooner.

The construction work on Orange Avenue is part of a project to improve the intersection of Orange Avenue and 18th Street — an area that has historically flooded, Russo said. The city received $1.4 million in grant funding to fund the project.
