• Reconstruction of the intersection of North Second and Locust streets continues. One lane of North Second remains closed for traffic heading south through the intersection. Both lanes are closed for traffic heading north. Northbound vehicles follow a detour that includes Elm, North Third, Locust and — crossing Union Pacific Railroad tracks — Lyon streets. City officials have said they hope to have one lane open in each direction by the end of the month; state transportation officials expect the detour to last into late January.
