First Street Closing Thursday, June 10 for Repairs
All lanes of First Street between Liberty and Cherry streets, next to Corpening Plaza, will be closed at 8 a.m. Thursday, June 10, to replace two 30-inch drain pipes under the street. The street will be closed through at least Friday afternoon and perhaps through the weekend, depending on how fast the work progresses.
Streets officials intend to complete the repairs under the left lane first so that lane can be re-opened to traffic as soon as possible. The middle and right lanes will remain closed while crews continue to repair damage under the street that caused a sinkhole to open May 26.
