City crews next week will begin replacement of a deteriorated storm drain under East Cleburn Street between North College Avenue and Willow Avenue.

The work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Jan. 21 and last through Feb. 14. Rain could delay or extend the estimated work time.

The street will be closed to thru traffic during work hours from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Detour routes will be in place to help with traffic and direction, according to a news release. City staff said the plan is to minimize traffic delays, but are asking drivers to allow extra time to get to their destinations, and to watch for workers and equipment.
