Construction on West Fifth this weekend
Friday, April 8, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano
Drivers might as well go ahead and anticipate delays on West Fifth Street this weekend. Construction between West Lynn and Baylor streets will continue through Saturday as the city installs new asphalt (among other things). Though the street will remain accessible during the work, “Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians traveling along West Fifth Street should be mindful of all work zone traffic signs, cones and flaggers. Drivers should travel slowly and be cautious of construction workers,” according to a statement to the press from the city. Work is expected to take place between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. and should be completed by Saturday.
