Beginning Monday, June 8, 2020, First Street will be closed to through traffic between Main Street and Maxwell Street while crews replace the concrete box culvert west of the high school entrance. First Street will be completely closed between North High Drive and the high school entrance. A marked detour will be provided via Main Street, East Kansas Avenue, and Maxwell Street.

First Street is scheduled to be reopened on August 7, 2020, weather permitting.
