Crews will be removing a tree that has cracked and split in the 300 block of Dodge Street. To allow for work, Dodge Street will close between Davenport and Bloomington Streets, beginning at 9 a.m. today, Aug. 16, 2016. 

Traffic will detour west onto Church Street to Dubuque Street to Market Street, and then back to Dodge Street. The closure is expected to last approximately 4 to 5 hours. Normal traffic should resume around mid-afternoon. 

Drivers should be aware of this closure and take an alternate route.  As always, use caution when driving through a construction area.
