Main Street between First and Temple streets will be closed to traffic from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. through June 22 as part of City Hall construction, according to the Department of Public Works.

The closure will be in effect seven days a week as part of the final phase of the landmark's seismic rehabilitation. Construction will involve installation of curbs and storm drains, as well as a bridge for the overpass connection of the Main and East City Hall buildings. Traffic signals and streetlights will also be overhauled during the renovation. The restored structure will open July 1.
