  There's a lot of dirt being moved around in the area of First Avenue and Lake Street.  City of Eau Claire Traffic Engineer Ross Spitz says crews are now working on building a retaining wall along the Chippewa River.  He says that should take until about the end of the month.   Spitz says after the retaining wall footings are complete, crews will begin work on the water main and storm sewer.  He says First Avenue from Lake street to W. Grand Avenue should re-open for traffic by mid-October.
