Starting late tonight, the intersection of Thor St. and 11th Ave. will be closed to to continue work on the Hartson and 11th avenues water transmission main project. Work on this $3.5 million project began at the end of July and is expected to be complete in December.
The project will replace a water transmission main with a larger main in Hartson and 11th avenues from Havana to Sherman. It will also repair the following streets: 11th Ave. from Altamont Blvd. to Julia St. and N. Altamont Blvd. from 11th to Ninth avenues; and Ninth Ave. from Perry to Julia streets. The project is being paid for by the City Water Department and 10-Year Street Bond.
Weather dependent, the intersection is expected to reopen for the evening commute on Friday, Oct. 15. Motorists will be detoured to Freya St.
