(COLUMBIA, MO) ~ Columbia's Garth Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Oak Street and Ash Street starting Monday, Feb. 26. The City's Sewer Utility has announced that this closure is necessary for a sewer line improvement project.

The Sewer Utility has planned to straighten the sanitary sewer pipes as part of a rehabilitation project. To complete this task, a contractor will insert a liner into the repaired pipe and use blown steam to expand and harden it, reinforcing the pipe.

Motorists, pedestrians, and nonmotorized transportation users are advised to use caution in the area or find alternate routes during this time. The City of Columbia apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this necessary improvement project.
