OTTUMWA – Motorists are advised that effective immediately, the Ottumwa water works will have the western portion of the intersection of Milner Street and Burrhus Ave. closed until further notice for a water main replacement. The south bound traffic on Milner will be slightly affected and the traffic on the west half of Burrhus will be closed. The work in the intersection should be completed by Friday May 22. The project will then extend in the west right of way, going north to Gladstone and will last approximately one month. Motorists should exercise caution around the work zones.
