Also on the Monday, crews are scheduled to begin replacing concrete cross gutters on Flintwood Drive at the intersections of Yellowwood Drive, Magnolia Street, 29th Street and Miami Drive. Officials say that construction will take place one intersection at a time. That intersection will be closed. Approximately one week later, crews will begin installing underdrains at these same locations.

City officials say that you need to be aware of workers and any “No Parking” signs that will be temporarily posted in the area.
