For Immediate Release

Fremont Avenue Closing South of Sunshine

Fremont Avenue south of Sunshine Street will be closed for about one month beginning at 7 a.m., Wednesday, June 3, 2009, for construction related to improvements at that intersection. The road will re-open on Friday, July 10, 2009, weather permitting.

Access to the St. John’s Health System medical buildings on Fremont Avenue will still be available from either Fremont, or in some cases through the parking lots on Fremont.

Motorists are advised to avoid the intersection if traveling on Fremont. A marked detour will be via Cherokee Street, Glenstone Avenue and Sunshine Street.

The intersection improvements include a new northbound right-turn lane from Fremont onto Sunshine to relieve congestion at the intersection, signal improvements and pavement replacement.

The $400,000 project is funded by the quarter-cent sales tax for capital improvements.
