No relief in sight yet from all those metal plates in the middle of Medford’s Riverside Avenue.

Work continues in the road days and nights this week in preparation for redevelopment projects downtown.

Multiple lane closures are planned between Main and Fifth streets from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. every night through Thursday. Every weekday this week, one lane will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. between Fourth and Maple streets.

Flaggers will be on the road as needed during the nighttime work, city officials say.
