Sewer work is progressing around the intersection of 9th and Belle Streets. Starting Monday, 2/6/2023, a sewer crew will be moving north up 9th Street. This will close the intersection of 9th/Hamilton, meaning any southbound traffic on 9th Street will need to use Madison (20thStreet) or State Street to navigate around the work area. Belle Street at 10th Street will remain open for traffic to access Piasa Street for the next couple of weeks. Additionally, another sewer crew will be starting work again between Piasa Street and Alby Street. North-South traffic on Piasa Street (US 67) will not be impacted.
