Road Closed

Part of an Eau Claire thoroughfare that connects north side neighborhoods to downtown will be closed today.

Utility work will shut down Starr Avenue between Seymour Road and Valley View Place for most of the day.

The work will begin early this morning and is expected to finish around 6 p.m. so the road will reopen on Wednesday.

A short detour will route traffic to North Hastings Way, which runs parallel to Starr Avenue, around the construction zone.
