A portion of SE Pioneer Way was closed to all vehicle traffic Monday and the disruption is expected to continue throughout the week.
Eastbound traffic on the road, which is now a one-way street, is being detoured left on Ely, right on Fidalgo, then right again on Dock Street.
The closure is due to the replacement of the aging sewer lines along the street as well as the connections to buildings. According to Oak Harbor project officials, contractors had hoped to be able to reopen one-way traffic during the nighttime hours, but the decision was made Monday afternoon to shut it down completely for safety reasons.
The road will remain closed 24 hours a day until Friday while daytime closures are expected to remain in effect until Tuesday, March 22.
