Winder's utility department is in the process of replacing some water lines under downtown streets in preparation for the Broad Street resurfacing and streetscape project that are coming.
Starting Monday, Aug. 6, the portion of North Jackson Street that is between East Stephens Street and East Midland Avenue will be closed. It will remain closed until Friday, Aug. 10.
"Utility crews will alternate closing the post office back parking lots so that there will be continuous access," said Meredith Cameron, director of the Winder Downtown Development Authority, in a press release.
In addition, the portion of East Stephens Street between Jackson and Broad streets will be closed. And northbound traffic on Broad will be rerouted into the turn lane so that a new water line can be installed in that northbound lane, Cameron said.
