Tuesday repair will close lanes on Midwestern Parkway, Kemp Blvd.
WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - A scheduled repair for a water valve will close lanes of Midwestern Parkway and Kemp Blvd. on Tuesday.
The City of Wichita Falls has warned that its Water Distribution Division will be conducting a scheduled repair to a large water valve at the southeast corner of Kemp Boulevard and the Midwestern Parkway intersection on Tuesday afternoon. The scheduled repair will close the following traffic lanes:
- two eastbound lanes of Midwestern Parkway
- turning lane going northbound on Kemp onto eastbound Midwestern Parkway
- eastbound lanes of Call Field
- turning left lane going southbound on Kemp
Motorists are advised to avoid the area during the repair, as they will be detoured around the excavation site to protect workers.
Furthermore, Water Distribution will conduct a water shutoff after 11 p.m. on Tuesday. While the late start time aims to avoid adverse effects on businesses in the Call Field/Kemp/Midwestern corridor, there is no current estimated time for how long the water valve and subsequent street repair will take.
Further questions can be directed to the Water Distribution Division at (940) 761-4333.
