South Monte Vista Street between Seventh and Kirby streets will be closed for up to three weeks while city workers repair a collapsed drain under the street.

Ada Public Information Director Lisa Bratcher said Thursday the entrance to Mercy Hospital Ada will remain accessible on Monte Vista by motorists turning off of ArlingtonĀ Street, but not from the south side of the closure. Bratcher said the city is working to provide an alternate route for those approaching the hospital from the southern side of the street closure.
