Elizabeth City motorists who typically use Southern Avenue should find an alternate route — at least for the next five weeks.

Starting at 8 a.m. on Monday, the part of Southern Avenue between B and Edge streets will be closed to traffic for repair work, local Emergency Management officials said last week.

The portion of Southern Avenue, which crosses Charles Creek, will remain closed until the work is complete, which is expected to take about five weeks.

Residences south of Edge Street will continue to be accessible by Herrington Road, officials said.
