Transportation/DOT - June 12, 2017
The closure of Fifth Street downtown has been extended to include the block between Spruce and Marshall streets to relocate a signal pole as part of the Benton Convention Center expansion project. Vehicles will have access from Spruce Street to the parking lot on the north side of the block.
DOT officials expect the closure to be in place two to three weeks. The closure will not affect traffic coming into downtown on Marshall Street, however, the traffic signal at the intersection of Fifth and Marshall streets will not be in service. A detour will be posted.
The block of Fifth Street between Cherry and Marshall streets has been closed since October for the expansion project and is scheduled to remain in place after the block between Spruce and Marshall is reopened. For more information call CityLink 311.
