AUGUSTA — Greater Augusta Utility District and Augusta Public Works are scheduled to repair a 100-foot section of Child Street near the state Department of Transportation building and parking lots this week.

Work is expected to start Tuesday. A section of the road will be closed to traffic for most of the week. The road is expected to be repaired and paved by Friday afternoon, according to Tim Wade, operations supervisor for the utility district.

District workers will excavate and replace gravel and pavement to repair damage caused by a water main break which occurred early in the spring.

The section of road to be closed is from the upper end of the street to just before Valley Street with access still available to the upper and lower entrances of a state parking lot just off Child Street.

Wade said there are no residences or other parking lots in the closed section, so other than traffic not being able to go through the closed section of the street, the effects should be minimal.

The city’s public works department will add a section of curb to the road as part of the project.
