Beginning Wednesday morning, January 6th, westbound 27th Street will be closed between Canal Blvd and Hall Street for gas line work. Westbound traffic will be detoured north on Canal Blvd to 29th Street. Motorists should use caution and allow a bit more time as traffic may become congested at 29th and Hall. Eastbound 27th Street will remain open to traffic. Work should be completed next week. Questions may be directed to Midwest Energy.
