LONGVIEW – Beginning Friday, the intersection of Center Street and Whaley Street in Longview will be closed to all traffic. Center Street will remain closed between Whaley and Methvin. The intersections at Methvin will remain open. Scheduling of this closure was done to avoid conflict with downtown events. The work is part of the 2011 Street Bond Fund. This project consists of reconstructing Center Street from Cotton to Whaley with curb and gutter, upgraded drainage inlets, sidewalks, signs, and water and sewer improvements. The work is being done by by East Texas Bridge of Longview.
