LIMA — Shawnee Street, between Hill and Market streets, will be closed to traffic beginning Monday for the reconstruction of the intersection of Elm and Shawnee streets, according to Lima city officials. The closure will be in effect until May.
Roberts Avenue will be the north-south detour during this time period. Lincoln Park will be accessed from the east by Elm Street and from the north by Shawnee Street. The east parking lot of Stadium Park and Spartan Stadium will be accessed from North Street by High, Sugar or Shawnee streets.
In addition, Bellefontaine Avenue, between Elm Street and Harrison Avenue, will be reduced from three lanes to two for the construction of a storm sewer. The remaining two lanes will be used to maintain traffic in both directions.
