Beginning on July 5, 2022, 8th Street will be closed at the Rio Grande Trail crossing. This closure is expected to last approximately three weeks. The closure is necessary to complete work on the new raised crossing, sidewalks, roadway and ditch crossing in that location.
From the north, 8th Street will still be open up to Merrill Avenue and from the south, 8th Street will be open to West 8th Place.
The section between West 8th Place and Merrill Avenue will be closed.
Weaver Ditch Closure:
The Weaver ditch will be turned off on the morning of July 5, 2022. It will be turned back on on Friday, July 8, 2022. This shutdown is necessary to allow for repairs to the ditch crossing on 8th Street near the Rio Grande Trail. Pumps without a low water shutoff should be turned off during this period to avoid damage.
