SPRINGFIELD - The Springfield Office of Public Works has announced that a portion of Iles Avenue will be temporarily closed on July 16.

Officials say the closure will allow crews to remove a tree from the right of way.  This closure will affect Iles Avenue between Bennington Street and Clifton Street, and is expected to last the day, weather permitting.

Motorists and pedestrians are urged to use the detour route, or other alternate routes, to avoid the area.  Officials also say motorists who disregard the "Do Not Enter" and "Road Closed" signs will be subject to a $250 fine.
