Arc de Triomphe - Traffic along the stretch of N. Main Street going through Monument Square is blocked again this morning as construction on the 1/3 scale replica of the Parisian artifact. The work will continue Saturday, when the framing is expected to be finished. During construction, the road will be open during the evenings. The arc gets its mural - laden fabric walls the week of Aug. 29, in time for the Block Party.
