A intersection on the Capitol Campus will be closed for repaving until Wednesday after a water main had to be replaced last month, according to the Department of Enterprise Services.

Crews planned to begin work Friday at the intersection of Water Street Southwest and 15th Avenue Southwest. Flaggers will be at the site to direct traffic through Wednesday.

The east half of Water Street will stay open to traffic between 15th and 16th avenues.

Nearby parking lots for state employees also will stay open. Traffic will be affected and there will be some noise.
