ESCANABA — A street in Delta County will be closed today for water service repair work.

South 12th Street in Escanaba will be closed from First Avenue South to Ludington Street starting this morning at 8:00 a.m. Officials say the closure will allow for work to take place on a leaking water service line. Drivers are asked to allow extra time if they are traveling in that area.

The street is expected to re-open by the end of business today. Anyone with questions or concerns can call the City of Escanaba Water Department at (906) 786-3291.
