Portions of Collins Avenue in Mandan will be closed for repairs starting today, after portions of the roadway buckled under the weekend heat.
From today through July 17, Collins will be closed to all through traffic, from Division Street to Fourth Street.
Traffic will be rerouted to Third Avenue Northeast.
The City of Mandan Public Works Department looked at trying to keep Collins open during repairs since it is a high traffic street, but the city didn’t have the appropriate traffic signal devices to make that happen.
The city urges motorists to use caution in and around the repair area.
