Overnight Road Closure Scheduled for Truxtun Avenue

Crews will be working on the bridges above the road

A nighttime closure has been scheduled for Truxtun Avenue on Tuesday, November 26. The closure will be in the vicinity of the Westside Parkway on- and off-ramps. This will be a full closure affecting both directions of travel between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

The westbound on-ramp will remain open, but eastbound motorists will need to exit the freeway at Mohawk Street and use California Avenue or Rosedale Highway to detour around the closure. Truxtun Avenue and the eastbound off-ramp are expected to be open in time for the morning commute. The closure is needed to remove forms and barrier brackets from the bridges above the street.

Work may be rescheduled without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Please slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment while driving in the vicinity of this work. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
