Concrete repair work will temporarily close several intersections along 7th Street in Hastings starting on Wednesday, June 24.

Ben Engel Construction will reconstruct intersections on 7th Street from California Avenue to 2nd Avenue. Work will consist of removing existing pavement and placing new concrete pavement. Crews will also complete curb, gutter and sidewalk concrete repair from Eastside Boulevard to 4th Avenue.

During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane through 7th Street at California Avenue and the following streets will be closed progressively along 7th Street as work continues:

- California Avenue

- Turner Avenue

- Elm Avenue

- Ash Avenue

- 2nd Avenue

No parking zones will be in effect on both sides of 7th Street during construction.

After the concrete is replaced, traffic will be restricted for up to 7 days on the newly-placed concrete.

Drivers are urged to use caution while in construction zones.

Work is expected to be completed in 30 days, weather permitting.

The project is funded by a 1.5% sales tax.
