For Immediate Release

Kimbrough Avenue to Reopen March 16, Weather Permitting

Road work is nearing completion on Kimbrough Avenue at McDaniel Street following a water line break that resulted in a roadway collapse in mid-January. The roadway remained closed while AT&T completed repairs on utility lines running beneath the intersection.

Structural repairs have been completed and one round of surface pavement has been poured. A second round of concrete is scheduled to be poured on Monday morning, weather permitting. After the concrete has cured, one lane of traffic going each direction will open by Monday afternoon.

Further updates on the status of Kimbrough Avenue will be sent on Monday as they are available.
