Repairs keep Bradenton intersection closed Thursday

Emergency road repairs are taking place Thursday in Bradenton.

City crews have shutdown the intersection of Ninth Avenue West and 16th Street West.

Crews will remove a valve at the intersection that has been leaking. At the same time, crews will complete work on an ongoing water main project.

Because workers will have to excavate for this job, Ninth Avenue will be closed between 15th Street West and 22nd Street West.

The roadway is expected to be closed until 3:30 p.m. Thursday.
