9th/Avon Street has been reduced to one lane to ensure the safety of the workers as well as traveling public. Vehicular traffic is being pushed to the west (Downtown Mall side, opposite Belmont neighborhood).
Unsuitable soil was discovered during the placement of a new sanitary sewer mainline. Last night, the work crew was able to backfill the excavation and procure a larger trench box. Crews will be on-site again placing a segment of pipe and will be backfilling as soon as possible.
It is expected 9th/Avon Street will return to two lanes by the evening peak/rush hours.
