A major road in Battle Creek is closed this week as a water main is completely overhauled.

The City of Battle Creek says that from now until Friday, Capital Ave. SW at Weeks Ave. will be completely closed, with a detour being posted on Golden Ave, Columbia Ave, and Riverside Dr. Emergency vehicles will not be able to get through.

In addition, some residents in the area will see their water service disrupted from 7am to 7pm Wednesday. Once the service resumes, residents should expect the possibility of a boil water advisory to be issued.

The following streets will have their water shut off Wednesday, May 30:

  • Capital Ave. SW from Columbia Ave. to Golden Ave.
  • Hiawatha Dr. from Capital Ave. SW to Capital Ave. SW

The area and time of these shutoffs could be changed, if "unforeseen circumstances" come up during this work.

The City also says that affected residents should have had door hangers distributed to inform them of the disturbance.
