A section of Eastern Avenue will close Monday to all but local traffic while new water service is installed, the City Department of Utilities said.
Starting at 8:30 a.m., Eastern Avenue between Morris Avenue and Wendell Avenue will be closed. Traffic will be detoured over Morris Avenue and Wendell Avenue to Union Street during the closure.
Construction workers "will be installing a new water service as a part of the Tribute Park project on this section of Eastern Avenue," Signal Superintendent John P. Coluccio said in a statement. "Additional short time closures are expected as the project progresses."
Eastern Avenue is expected to reopen at 6 p.m. Monday.
