News Release

For Immediate Release

National Avenue Lane Closure

National Avenue will be reduced to one northbound lane south of Grand Street beginning at 7 a.m., Monday, June 1, through 5 p.m., Friday, June 5, 2009.

The lane closure is necessary for AT&T’s utility-relocation work as part of the intersection-improvement project at National and Grand. This is the third of three phases of closures to allow for this work.

The intersection improvements will include new dual-left turn lanes, right-turn lanes, storm sewers, sidewalks, traffic signals, lighting, and curb and gutter. It also includes new safety features such as ADA improvements and crosswalk countdown signals. The $1.16 million project is funded through the voter-approved quarter-cent Sales Tax for Capital Improvements.
