Merchant Street closed at Sixth as water main installation continues Chuck Samples/KVOE News

Drivers accustomed to using Merchant Street at West Sixth will need to make some adjustments for the foreseeable future.

Crews continue installing a 10-inch water main in the 10 block of West Sixth, and now the south part of the intersection is closed at least through the end of next week. Southbound traffic can turn east or west onto Sixth, but northbound traffic will have to detour at Fifth Avenue to get around the blockage.

There is a possibility the work could continue for most of December, but that depends on how the project develops. 

Sixth Avenue traffic continues as it did at the start of the project several days ago, with eastbound traffic squeezed to the center turning lane and westbound traffic using the normal two lanes past the construction zone.

All work should be done by early January.
