Mills Avenue will be closed from Elm Street to Turner Road from about 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. beginning today and continuing until July 26. Local traffic will be allowed.
The street closure will take place so that the city of Lodi can install a 36-inch water pipeline to connect the future surface water treatment plant to the city's water system. The plant is under construction and is scheduled for completion in August 2012.
Street parking on Mills will not be allowed. Crews will notify homeowners at least 24 hours in advance if they will block driveways or prevent access to homes.
To avoid the construction area, motorists may take North Loma Drive, one block east of Mills Avenue.
