Starting at 7 this morning, Mill Street in Kelso will be closed to all traffic between Grade Street and South Pacific Avenue, as permanent pavement repairs are conducted as part of the restoration project on that street. Advance Excavating Specialists will be grinding the street and performing the pavement repairs. Today’s closure is expected to last about ten hours. If you live along Mill Street in this area, “every reasonable effort” will be made to allow access to homes in the work area. If you have questions, call the Kelso Engineering Department at 423-6590.
