Weather permitting, on Thursday, October 29, 2015, southbound traffic on Gilbert Street, between Iowa Avenue and Jefferson Street, will be reduced to one lane.  This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate utility work in the area. It is anticipated that that normal traffic will resume by early afternoon of the same day.

Motorists are encouraged to allow extra travel time or to seek an alternate route during this time period.  As always, caution should be exercised when driving through all construction areas.
