Downtown Modesto street, sidewalks to be improved

As part of an ongoing effort to beautify downtown Modesto, 10th Street between I and J streets, will be closed between Tuesday and July 29 for curb, gutter and pavement work.

The curb and gutter repair work begins Tuesday and is planned to be completed by July 22. Tenth Street between I and J streets will be repaved the week of July 25.
