Drivers west of the University of Arkansas campus should expect to find Hotz Drive closed to traffic on Thursday, Oct. 20 while city crews work to replace a storm drainpipe between Razorback Road and Palmer Avenue.

The closure will take place from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will include the installation of marked detour routes, according to a news release.

The work is part of an improvement project that includes a new 5-foot-wide sidewalk along the east side of Palmer Avenue.
