Kansas Gas Service has requested the city of McPherson close a section of Avenue A in order to make repairs on a gas pipeline that runs underneath.
The area includes 350 feet east of Clubhouse Drive, putting it in close proximity to the Deerfield and Foxfire housing subdivisions.
During the closing, people wanting to travel between Maxwell Road and Centennial Drive on Avenue A will need to take a detour, Assistant Public Works Director Steve Schmidt said.
There will be detour signs to direct traffic at the corners of Maxwell and Avenue A, Maxwell and Kansas, Centennial and Kansas and Avenue A and Centennial, Schmidt said.
Kansas Gas Service plans to begin work on Nov. 18, although the date is subject to change.
The work is estimated to take three weeks to complete.
A final plan will be presented at Monday’s city commission meeting.
