Traffic will be detoured to Fredericksburg Street, South Guadalupe Street, West Hutchison Street, West Hopkins Street, West San Antonio Street and West Martin Luther King Drive to avoid the area.

Traffic controls will be placed on the roadway and construction crews will begin site preparation on Comanche Street at the West Martin Luther King Drive intersection. Excavation and trenching is scheduled to start next Monday, June 7.
