The intersection of Memorial Drive and Welborn and Rebecca streets will be closed Wednesday for construction, according to Vickie Davis, director of the Downtown Development Authority.

Rebecca and Welborn streets, which meet Memorial from different directions at the same place will re-open Friday for local traffic, but Memorial will remain closed approximately 100 feet east of the intersection.

Construction workers aree connecting Welborn and Rebecca to the new Memorial Drive Corridor, which is part of a downtown redevelopment project. 

In another part of  project, tentatively, Main Street is scheduled to be closed from Jan. 19-23, for the installation of curbing, sidewalk, and roadway for a round-about at its intersection with Washington and the new Memorial Drive. There will intermittent lane closures to follow the next week while streets are paved.
