ITHACA, N.Y.—One block of Floral Avenue will partially close for the day Friday as crews work to fix a water main issue. The road will remain open, but one lane will close as a result.

Crews will be working on the 200 block of Floral Avenue south of Elm Street from 7 a.m. Friday until 3:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2. There will be no interruptions to water service.

The city said to expect local traffic congestion, as Floral Avenue will be reduced to one lane for the duration of the work.
