Crews are restoring a 500 foot section of Ashland Creek to make sure the stream can handle another major storm.
During the reconstruction, Water Street near Central Avenue will be closed for most of August.
Pedestrian walkways will be closed from 9 AM to 6 PM during workdays, and reopened on weekends.
Crews are scheduled to suck dry a 300-foot bend in the stream in order to relocate fish trapped in the area on Thursday.
reports say the restoration work will begin soon later this month.
