n From 6 a.m. Monday, Aug. 10, until 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, First Avenue will be closed between Oak Street and Walnut Street. Driveways will also be closed.

The overall project, which is expected to be finished this fall, includes grinding, repaving and restriping 3.4 miles of TV Highway; upgrading the stormwater system; replacing some sidewalk ramps and driveways; and adding new traffic sensor loops and signs.
