COLUMBIA — Downtown construction will affect car and foot traffic next week.

Beginning Monday, Stephens College will replace the pedestrian bridges spanning College Avenue and Broadway near the intersection of the two roads, according to a news release from Stephens College. The project is slated to last one month, during which the bridges will not be available for use. Detour signs will be posted so pedestrians can avoid any closed sidewalks.

Any lane closures necessary are scheduled to occur between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., and if Broadway or College Avenue need to be closed, the work will be done between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., according to the release. Flaggers will be used to control traffic.

Fifth Street restriction

Construction work will begin at the parking garage at Fifth and Walnut streets Monday. Glass molding will be installed, as well as one pane of art glass.

Walnut Street will remain open, and Fifth Street will be restricted to southbound traffic only, according to a release from the Columbia Public Works Department. The sidewalks will be closed in the work zone. The project is scheduled to be completed and the road reopened by 1 p.m. Thursday, weather permitting.

Supervising editor is Jake Kreinberg.
