Traffic Control on Real Road Continues

Closure on Ford Avenue also planned

Traffic control will continue on Real Road, between Stockdale Highway and Elcia Drive, on Monday, March 30 and Tuesday, March 31 while crews work on a drainage system in this area. Flagging personnel will need to stop traffic for up to five minutes between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes or allow extra time to reach their destinations if they must travel through this area while work is underway.

An around-the-clock closure is planned for Ford Avenue, between Dunlap Street and Morrison Street, from 7 a.m. Thursday, April 2 through 5 p.m. Friday, April 3. The closure is needed to dismantle and remove the large crane used in the construction of the future bridge abutments. North McDonald Way and Stine Road will be open and residents can detour around the closure using Joseph Drive.

Work may be cancelled or rescheduled without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Please slow down and pay attention to construction workers and equipment. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
