Original News Release

A section of eastbound Westside Parkway between Calloway Drive and Coffee Road will remain closed temporarily through this upcoming weekend to allow crews to replace concrete panels and make enhancements to the drainage system. City staff recently noted some unevenness in the pavement surface within one lane of the Parkway.  The work may require the closure of up to two eastbound lanes within the immediate area of construction. This work is scheduled to be completed by Monday, January 16th, weather permitting. Drivers are reminded to obey traffic control signage and personnel at all times. Motorists may experience delays and are encouraged to take alternate routes whenever possible. Due to the emergency nature of the work, the agreement with the contractor will appear on a future City Council agenda upon completion of the improvements.
