Nighttime Closures Scheduled for Eastbound Truxtun Avenue

Road will be closed between Commercial Way and Empire Drive

Nighttime closures have been scheduled for eastbound Truxtun Avenue from Monday, February 24 through Wednesday, February 26. The road will be closed between Commercial Way and Empire Drive between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., each night. The nighttime closures also include the eastbound Westside Parkway off-ramp.

Eastbound traffic on Truxtun Avenue and on the Westside Parkway will need to detour at Mohawk Street and use either Rosedale Highway or California Avenue while work is underway. The closures are needed for finish work and to remove signs.

Westbound Truxtun Avenue and the westbound Truxtun Avenue on-ramp to the Westside Parkway are expected to remain open while work is underway. All lane and the off-ramp are expected to re-open in time for the morning commute.

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.
