LYNDEN ­— Seventh Street south of Grover goes into rebuild mode this week.

The work by contractor DeKoster Excavating begins at the north end, between Front and Grover streets, from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, reports city Public Works.

Access will be restricted where the work is happening, although it will still be possible for vehicles to go through the alley between Sixth and Seventh streets to use the Post Office dropoff box there.

The work is to install utilities and then rebuild the street surface with curb, gutter, sidewalk and pavement. Also, the alley will be somewhat reconstructed. The work will continue south of Front Street too.

“The Seventh and Front intersection will look very similar to the one recently completed (in 2015) two blocks to the east at Fifth,” Public Works programs manager Mark Sandal said.

During construction motorists may experience flagged traffic and intermittent closures and detours, Sandal said. “We will work to keep these inconveniences to a minimum.” The contractor may extend daily work hours to lessen traffic impacts.
