Construction Update and Road Closure

Post Date:06/02/2017 9:09 AM
We have reached the home stretch on our Western Avenue Safety Improvements Project. Next week the City’s contractor is ready to install the mini roundabout at the intersection of Cherry St and Western Ave. The work in the middle of the roadway will require a complete closure of the intersection for 4 nights and three days. The intersection will close on Monday June 5th at 7:00 PM and reopen by Friday June 9th at 6:00 AM.

Pedestrians will have access through the intersection for the duration of the closure.

Signed detours are provided via Skyline Drive for residents to the south of the closure. Traffic utilizing Cherry St via Western Ave to the north will have access through a signed detour on local neighborhood streets. Drivers are reminded to keep your speed low through the alternate routes.

The roundabout will be fully operational as soon as the roadway re-opens. Please follow the signing and striping in place as you navigate the new traffic control at the intersection.

If you have questions about this project, please call (509) 888-3213.
