SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -

Pavement repair will cause Kimbrough Avenue directly north and south of Grand Street to close from 7 p.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday. Motorists should plan an alternate route. These repairs are part of the Grand at Kimbrough intersection improvements.

The repairs are in the same area as a street closing for City Utilities of Springfield work.  Kimbrough was closed to traffic between Bear Avenue and Harrison Street beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday.  It could reopen around 3 p.m. Detours will be in place.

CU Water and Natural Gas Construction crews are installing service to new apartments under construction in that area.
