City street, bridge projects begin

East Third Street is closed to through traffic between North Parkway Street and Harper Road for work on the bridge near McPeters Funeral Home. The closure may last several weeks.

The long-anticipated Norman Road and Gaines Road rehabilitation project is set to begin, and the city is also alerting residents to a closure on Third Street for bridge work.

Phillips Construction, contractor for the Norman Road and Gaines Road work, will begin mobilizing equipment on Monday.
