Final roadway marking and striping was delayed due to rain. There may be traffic control at the Trinity and Knecht intersection early this week to allow for final roadway markings and striping.

Work continues on 46th Street and 47th Street off Trinity. Access to residences as well as services such as mail delivery, emergency services, trash and recycling collection will be maintained.
