Update as of September 11, 2017:  

The work on West 4th Street is in the last phases of construction. The contractor has finished all of the sewer work in the 4th Street Park area. The intersection of Cherry and West 4th is open on a limited basis depending upon contractor activities that change quickly. West 4th St. between Cherry and the park is being prepared for paving along with Broadway on the West side of the park back to Cherry Lane. The paving contractor has completed the concrete work on Broadway between the #3 and #4 alleys and from the #4 alley up West 4th to Cherry Lane on the north side of the park. West 4th between Locust and the park, and Broadway between the #3 and #4 alleys will be opened up to local traffic incrementally as the paving and finishing work are accomplished.

Sewer work on East 5th is beginning now between Cedar and Sycamore. That block will be closed for underground sewer work. The intersections with East 5th at Cedar and Sycamore are open for the time being. As the work moves up East 5th through the Sycamore and Iowa intersections the streets and intersections will be closed. The last part of the sewer work there will involve the closure of Sycamore between East 5th and East 6th Streets.
