      Lakeshore Boulevard closing for repairs

      A water main leak will cause a section of Lakeshore Boulevard to be closed beginning Wednesday.

      The section of Lakeshore Boulevard between Main Street and Ridge Street will be closed for the repairs until Friday. The city says that the routine repair will be done before the Blueberry Festival on Friday.

      "They'll make the repair after hours and start putting stuff back together," says Scott Cambensy, Public Works superintendent. "They get things put back together as quick as they can the following day so they have it opened up for all the festivities down there."

      The road will be closed to through traffic, so residents along the road will still have access to the street.

      People wanting to go to Mattson Lower Harbor Park can still access the parking lot if they enter from the north.
