Construction crews will be working on 7th Street between F and G.
The conversion will benefit motorists, cyclists and residents according to J.D. Banfield with the city’s traffic engineering office. "We think it will add better circulation to the Richards Boulevard area, it’ll add another route in and out of the central business district, this should help take some of the traffic out of the residential neighborhoods and it will also expand bicycle access."
He says the city will redirect traffic while the project is under construction. It’s expected to be finished on or about June 15th.
