According to a release from the city, the project will be done in two phases.

Phase 1 will close Oak from 17th Avenue South to 19th Avenue South and 22nd Avenue South to 24th Avenue South. Phase 1 will be finished by mid-August, weather-permitting.

Phase 2 will close Oak from 19th Avenue South to 22nd Avenue South. This will start in mid-August and be done by mid-October, weather-permitting.

Detour signs will be posted.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
