Construction constricts traffic near White Auditorium

Konnecting LINK work wraps up in the next few days, and one section of work Wednesday has adjusted traffic near W.L. White Auditorium.

Asphalt overlay work on Sixth Avenue between Commercial and Market prompted workers to close the 500 block of Mechanic along the west side of the civic building. City Engineer Jerry Menefee said that block of Mechanic would be closed until the asphalt was partially cured, meaning the street could reopen by late afternoon.

Asphalt overlay continues on Sixth from Commercial to Peyton and on East U.S. Highway 50 from Corinth to Emporia's east city limits. Work could end Friday or early next week.
