(Moorhead, MN) -- Work is about to begin on a street project that could effect the way you get around Moorhead.
Starting Tuesday, portions of 8th Street North will be closed for a brick sewer re-lining project. Also, several blocks of 8th Street North and Center Avenue will have one lane of traffic in each direction:
- 8th Street will be closed between 2nd Avenue North and Center Avenue, however the intersection of 8th Street North and 1st Avenue North will allow east/west traffic
- 8th Street from Center Avenue to Main Avenue will have one lane of traffic in each direction
- Center Ave between 8th Street and 9th Street will also have one lane of traffic in each direction
Drivers should expect delays in the area and find alternate routes, if possible. Trucks will be required to detour on Main Avenue to 11th Street North; for all other vehicles, 11th Street North will be the best alternate route.
This work is expected to last approximately one month, weather permitting.
