Knife River Materials has started work on a nearly $1.7 million project extending Holly Street between Holmes Avenue and Garfield Street.
Holly Street is open to only local traffic south of Stewart Avenue with access to Stewart Meadows Golf Course and Fitchner Mainwaring Park. Holmes Avenue is closed east of Kenyon Street. The closure are in effect now through Aug. 23.
The extension project is designed to provide another north-south connection from Garfield to Stewart Avenue, said city officials, who first identified the need for the project in 1996.
