The street will be closed between Arsenal and Coffeen streets from 6 p.m. to midnight Monday and for the same period Tuesday if more work is needed.
Motorists are asked to use alternate routes.
Traffic for local residences and businesses will be allowed as far as Emmett Street from either direction.
Barricades and signs will be in place to help guide traffic.
