The arrival and installation of a new heating and cooling unit at the Allendale Theatre will close the west end of Allen Street at 7 a.m. Wednesday.
The blocks affected run from Elmwood Avenue to Wadsworth and Hudson streets, said Andrew Eisenhard, executive director of the Allentown Association. Mariner and College streets, which intersect with Allen, will be closed to through traffic.
The delivery and installation at is expected to take four to six hours, but no completion time is guaranteed. The Allendale, at 203 Allen St., was built in 1913. It is the home performance space for Theatre of Youth.
The street closures are required by the City of Buffalo Department of Public Works.
