Allen Street, from 15th to 19th, will be closed from 9:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday while Midwest Energy crews replace poles and string new wires in the area.

The closure is one of several in recent weeks as crews take advantage of good weather to perform needed system upgrades in central Hays.

Road cones and signs will be in place to help guide traffic. Midwest Energy apologizes for any inconvenience.
