One lane to close on 140th Avenue Northeast next week

Drivers should avoid traveling on 140th Avenue Northeast near Northeast Eighth Street next week, as one of the street’s two lanes will be closed for replacement of a large water pipe valve.

Starting Monday a lane will be closed on 140th between Northeast Eighth and 12th streets. The work is scheduled to take place daily, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., for up to five days, or until the work is completed.

A utility crew must dig up the roadway to replace the valve, which the city suspects of a leak.

Flaggers will direct traffic in both directions to the open lane. Travelers are urged to take an alternate route or expect long backups in both directions on 140th Avenue Northeast.
