On Wednesday, the intersection of Fourth and H streets will be closed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The eastbound curb lane of H Street also will be closed between Third and Fifth streets. On Friday, the intersection of Seventh and H streets will be closed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as the eastbound curb lane on H Street between Sixth and Eighth streets.
