West Orange Street at the North Jefferson Street intersection will be closed 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday as Emery Sapp & Sons conducts a water main replacement for Missouri American Water Co.

The active construction zone will be along North Jefferson between Orange Street and the north Mexico city limits. Work also will include Schopp and North Washington streets in the same general areas.

The project is expected to complete by the first week of December.
