BLOOMINGTON – The Bloomington Public Works Department reports vehicle traffic will be closed on Market Street from Main to Center streets downtown to ensure safety during an emergency sewer repair on Market Street. The closure will continue until the repair is completed.

Pedestrian traffic on the block is closed on the south side of the street for emergency sidewalk repair. The city hopes to reopen the sidewalk by Monday morning.

The Bloomington Water Department will be making emergency water service repairs in the 2000 block of East Oakland Avenue between Moore Street and Oakland Court.

Due to the location of the water service repair, East Oakland Avenue will be closed to thru traffic. The road closure is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Wednesday and will reopen when the work is complete.

Anyone with questions should call the Water Department at (309) 434-2426.
