Fourth Street between Lyon St. and Curtis St. closed Wednesday as Mechanical Systems, Inc. moves forward with sewer work over the next couple of days.

“We’re hoping just until Friday afternoon,” said Craig Goble, the company’s pipe superintendent.

Drivers can still access area businesses and residences while the road is closed.

The closure was not part of original plans, but had to be added so crews can set a manhole.

Goble says Curtis St. between Third and Fourth will also close within a few weeks as construction continues. He believes the entire project will wrap up within 4-6 weeks.
