Crews work to pave West Market Street near Belvidere Avenue in downtown York, Pa. on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015.

York City on Monday began a monthlong paving project on South Pershing Avenue.

The work marks the first phase of a larger block-by-block project to completely repave the street. This phase begins at the intersection with West Springettsbury Avenue and ends at the intersection with West King Street.

Motorists should expect road closures in area over the coming days, city officials said. 

The project will continue to close portions of South Pershing Street as it progresses, according to a Tuesday news release. Each block is expected to be closed no longer than one week.
