This weekend also starts the beginning of a detour on 4th Street. As part of the Colorado Street Reconstruction Project, eastbound traffic on 4th Street is being detoured to 5th Street starting Sunday and lasting through mid-May.

The City's contractor for the project will be working on the southwest corner of 4th & Colorado,  where the city will be installing new sidewalks and electric lines among other infrastructure work.

The Colorado Street Reconstruction Project began in late March of 2012.
