MATTOON -- Marshall Avenue from 11th to 13th Streets has been closed to traffic due to construction of a city water line project.
Public Works Director Dean Barber said city crews are moving a water line along the north side of Marshall in advance of Beniach Construction of Tuscola starting road work there on July 23. Beniach crews are slated to reconstruct Marshall from Ninth to 12th streets.

He said the current road closure on Marshall Avenue from 11th to 13th will remain in effect as other road closures are implement for the reconstruction project.
