A small section of downtown will be closed to traffic for the next few weeks.
Starting Monday, Bowie Street, between Market Street and Commerce Street, will be shut down for three weeks to complete underground utility work. Access to businesses will still be available through Market and Commerce Streets.
Drivers will be directed to Alamo Street or the Interstate 37 turn around to get from Market to Commerce, or vice versa.
To plan for the future, Market Street from Bowie Street to I-37 will be closed to all traffic starting Sept. 14. The closure will be in place for about 11 months. That project will realign Market Street to run parallel to Commerce Street.
