Road construction has closed some streets in Washington. J.J. Bell, maintenance and construction supervisor for the City of Washington, said South 12th Avenue from Tyler to Fillmore Street, and East Tyler Street from 10th to 12th Avenue are closed because these streets will be repaved with concrete. Whitesell is letting residents park on the grass by the parking lot of 10th and East Tyler Street while the construction is going on, Bell said. The city is also doing concrete and manhole patches around town, Bell said. The patching work is being done throughout the city but mostly by the schools.
